A delayed election took place Sunday in Pococí. The vote was postponed last Sunday because part of the northern canton was under water.
The results were no surprise. The candidate of Partido Liberación Nacional defeated opponents. He is Jorge Emilio Espinoza Vargas. He got more than 50 percent of the votes cast. Only about 15 percent of the eligible residents voted. There are 75,000 potential voters in the canton, said the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones.
