Contralora general picked

Lawmakers named Marta Eugenia Acosta Zúñiga as the new contralora general Monday. She has been the deputy contralora since 2004. She was not among the 10 original candidates for the post but lawmakers were not able to choose one of them.

The Contraloría General de la República is the nation’s budget watchdog and its workers have to rule on any major contracts.
