President finally speaks at legislature today

President Laura Chinchilla will have a second chance to delivery her state of the state address today at 4 p.m.

The president’s major address highlighting her first year in office became a casualty of the political infighting at the Asamblea Legislativa Sunday when opposition parties sought to take over the leadership.

The leadership issue was resolved Monday, and the new assembly president, Juan Carlos Mendoza of the Partido Acción Ciudadana, invited Ms. Chinchilla to speak. The May 1 speech of the president is a major event. The legislative chamber is filled with diplomats and special guests.

Today the mystery is not as great because Casa Presidencial already released the text that Ms. Chinchilla was to deliver Sunday. A.M. Costa Rica wrote a story outlining parts of the talk, and La Nación put the entire text on its Web site.
