    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Two polls released today show that the possibility of a second round of elections in Costa Rica, and one of them shows an increase of undecided voters for the elections next Sunday.

    In the study released Wednesday, the last day authorized by the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) to disclose polls, neither candidate is close to reaching 40% of the votes needed to win in the first round.

    The presidential candidate of the ruling National Liberation Party (PLN, Social), Johnny Araya, is leading with 17.4%, followed by José María Villalta, of the leftist Frente Amplio (14.4%).

    The only presidential candidate who registered a rise in voter intention survey compared to last week was Luis Guillermo Solís, who rose nearly two points, while the rest suffered small declines.

    The survey was conducted between January 20 and 27 through telephone interviews with 800 adults and has a margin of error of 3.46%.

    Next Sunday nearly 3.1 million Costa Ricans are called to the polls to elect the president, two vice presidents and 57 members of the Legislative Assembly for the period of 2014-2018.

    If no candidate reaches 40% of the votes, a second round will be held on April 6 between the two best candidates. (ACAN-EFE)
