Candidates face off at Grupo Extra debate in Costa Rica

March 19, 2018

Fabricio Alvarado of the National Restoration Party (PRN), left, listens as Carlos Alvarado of the Citizen Action Party (PAC) speaks during a debate Monday night hosted by Grupo Extra.

At the debate, held at Club Unión in downtown San José, the candidates discussed issues ranging from the country’s dire fiscal panorama, to a recent wave of femicides, to the “cementazo” corruption scandal, to the track record of the current PAC administration. (Carlos Alvarado indicated that in terms of cabinet appointees, his government would be “borrón y cuenta nueva” – a fresh start.)
