    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – About 70 international delegations are confirmed so far to assist the transfer of power in Costa Rica, where on 8th May the presidential sash will be delivered to Luis Guillermo Solís, local authorities reported today.

    Director of protocol of the Costa Rican Foreign Ministry, Marco Vinicio Vargas, said in a press conference that a total of 170 invitations to countries, with which Costa Rica has diplomatic relations and international organizations, were sent.

    The leaders who have confirmed their attendance are the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales; of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes; of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández; of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli; of the Dominican Republic, Danilo Medina, and of Ecuador, Rafael Correa.

    In addition, the Prince of Asturias Felipe de Borbon, a special unidentified envoy of Pope Francisco, Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Chilean José Miguel Insulza, the Secretary General of the Central American Integration System (SICA), the Salvadoran Hugo Martinez and Secretary General Iberoamericana, Costa Rican Rebeca Grynspan.

    “It will be a ceremony full of transparency and respect,” said Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Costa Rica, Gioconda Ubeda.

    Meanwhile, the executive director of the Legislative Assembly, Antonio Ayales, said: “The act is an example that every four years our country gives to the world, to be a source of pride not only for those involved but for the whole country.”

    “It’s a transfer with a free and patriotic spirit that has characterized Costa Ricans,” he said.

    The ceremony will be held on May 8 at the National Stadium in San Jose and will start at 10.00 local time (1600 GMT) and is expected to last one hour and 30 minutes.

    The transmission will be open to the public to invite the public to a “national and international party” where over 23,000 people are expected to attend.

    Two hours before the activity, cultural events will be held outside the stadium to include the population and involve about 3,000 students of schools and colleges.

    As reported by the future first lady, the Spanish Mercedes Peñas, the elected president will attend the inauguration with his family and close friends, plus special guests.

    Solis, who will rule over the period of 2014-2018, will receive the presidential sash from outgoing president, Laura Chinchilla, the first woman to hold office in the country’s history.

    Safety will be covered by a total of 650 police officers from the security forces.
