President’s comment irks lawmakers

Lawmakers have taken issue with the president’s hope that development in the southwestern part of the country will not repeat the errors of the development model of Guanacaste.

The president, Luis Guillermo Solís, made that statement when he visited the new museum for the stone spheres in Osa last week.  It appears he also said that on a twitter feed.

Marta Arauz Mora, a Liberación Nacional lawmaker, protested Tuesday and said that the presidential Web site is generating information indicating that it does not want foreigners to come and enjoy themselves in the country’s beauty and culture.

Another lawmaker, Johnny Leiva Badill, said the central government was failing to provide leadership for Guanacaste development and tourism.
