Parties will debate issues in advance of runoff vote

Johnny Araya Monge, the candidate of Partido Liberación Nacional, may have stalled his presidential campaign, but the party has not.

Both Liberación and Partido Acción Ciudadana said that they would meet Monday at 6:30 p.m. in a debate on economic issues and Tuesday at the same time for a debate on social issue.  Bernal Jiménez Monge, president of Liberación confirmed the debates.

Luis Guillermo Solís of Acción Ciudadana is generally seen as the front runner for the April 6 runoff vote, mainly because of Araya’s actions.

He has been campaigning vigorously. The presidential candidates are not expected to be involved in the two evenings of debates.
