      Do not vote Jonny in. He will only continue the corruption from Laura and Oscar. The USA has they hands in this election. As they do with all elections around the world.

      Luís Guillermo Sólis and his party head to head with Johnny Araya this April 2, I, for one think this is a good thing. The last two presidents were mildly putting it disappointing and the PLN = corruption in the oversight in Roads contracts and gave Lady Laura a 4 years “vacation” traveling around the world on our centavo. Shameful.
