Centre-Leftist Carlos Alvarado set to win Costa Rica presidential election


All signs have gone in favour of the centre-left presidential candidate, Carlos Alvarado, as the counting process of over ninety one per cent of the casted votes have been completed in the Costa Rica presidential elections.

In the crucial second round of the election, the winning candidate, Carlos Alvarado, has so far secured nearly sixty per cent votes, at least twenty per cent more than what his opponent, Fabricio Alvarado, the candidate who won maximum number of votes in the preliminary round of the election, has secured.

Anyway, immediately after the initial signs of the centre-leftist candidate’s victory has emerged, the looser, the centre-right candidate has conceded his defeat.

In the run-up to the presidential election, the country has discussed several sensitive issues such as the financial deficit, raising murder rates and gay-marriage.

Of the three main topic discussed widely during the election, the gay-marriage has been the most serious issue.

The conservative centre-rightist candidate has taken an anti-gay marriage stand while the liberal centre-leftist has expressed a pro-gay marriage stand.

A political observer claims that the stands taken by the candidates in the sensitive issues widely discussed during the election campaigns has considerably impacted the election outcome.

Will the young centre-leftist be able to overcome the threats posed by the financial deficit, rising crime rate and the conservatives?
