Laura Chinchilla is clear frontrunner in Costa Rica

(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Former vice-president Laura Chinchilla is heavily favoured to become the next president of Costa Rica, according to a poll by Demoscopía published in Al Día. 53 per cent of respondents would vote for the candidate of the ruling National Liberation Party

(PLN) in next year’s election.

Otto Guevara of the Libertarian Movement (ML) is a distant second with 15.7 per cent, followed by former economy minister Otton Solis of the Citizens Action Party (PAC) with 12.3 per cent, and Luis Fishman of the Social Christian Unity Party (PUCS) with 1.5 per cent.

In June, Chinchilla won the PLN’s nomination in the party’s convention, defeating San Jose mayor Johnny Araya Monge. Chinchilla vowed to represent "continuity."

The next presidential election in Costa Rica is scheduled for Feb. 7, 2010.
