We requested interviews with the leading candidates for legislator for Guanacaste. What bills would you propose in the Legislative Assembly? How do you intend to contribute to solving the problems we face in Guanacaste? What has your contribution to the province been?
We selected the eight parties that are leading in the voter polls according to the survey done in December by the Center for Research and Political Studies (CIEP-UCR for the Spanish acronym). From each party, we selected the candidate who heads the list of candidates for legislator.
Candidate Daniela Segnini from New Republic didn’t take time to our interview petition. Instead, we asked the New Generation candidate, the party that according to the CIEP survey ranks third in voting intentions in Guanacaste.
We asked everyone the same series of questions and other specific questions about topics uniquely associated with them. Responses were edited for length only.
In this second installment, we present the responses of candidates Luis Fernando Mendoza (PLN), María Elena Paniagua (PLP), María Rosa Angulo (PAC) and Elda Vásquez (PNG).
