September 21, 2011

Political scientist, former congressman and La Nación columnist, Rodolfo Cerdas, died last Friday in San José. Cerdas was one of Costa Rica’s most recognized political analysts. He was a militant, left-winged citizen. He served in Congress from 1978 to 1982, during Rodrigo Carazo’s administration.

Cerdas had been ill for several months. He was 72.

Every Sunday, for the past 10 years, Cerdas’ shared his opinion in the column, “Ojo crítico” (“Critical eye”), published in the daily national newspaper La Nación.

Last Saturday, the Legislative Assembly held an honor guard for Cerdas’ body. A wake was held the night before. Cerdas’ remains were buried in the San José Obrero Cemetery.
