Solís seeks counsel from ex-presidents

President Luis Guillermo Solís will be paying calls on his predecessors in the next few days.

Casa Presidencial said that the president would visit Óscar Arias Sánchez today at 10 a.m. in the former president’s home in Rohrmoser.

Monday, Solís will visit Abel Pacheco at 1 p.m. in Pacheco’s house.

Neither of the former presidents are of the president’s political party. Casa Presidencial did not say what the topic of the meetings would be, but the financial shape of the country is sure to come up.

Arias was the president that padded the public employee rolls as a solution to the economic downturn that took place when he was in office.

In addition to the general financial picture, Solís also is concerned with unemployment and proposals he is about to put before the legislature for a value-added sales tax and higher income tax rates. Solís certainly would like to see both former presidents come out in support of the tax package.
