President seeking accord with opposition politicians

President Laura Chinchilla met with some of the leaders of the opposition Partido Unidad Social Cristiana Wednesday in an effort to create a common agenda that could be passed rapidly.

Casa Presidencial said that the president favors reforms to the regulations of the legislature so that a time period could be established for voting on a proposal. However, such a decision would have to be taken internally by lawmakers.

Today the president is scheduled to meet with leaders or representatives of Partido Accesibilidad sin Exclusión, Restauración Nacional, Renovación Costarricense and Frente Amplio. The last three have but one member each in the legislature.

The president already has outlined her plans with her own Partido Liberación Nacional and has succeeded in helping elect members of that party to leadership positions in the Asamblea Legislativa to better expedite executive branch proposals.
