Chinchilla presents four bills to reform Costa Rica

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

The president of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, introduced four bills with substantial reforms to public institutions, the Legislative Assembly, and the Constitution itself, which she says aim to improvement government beginning in 2014.

The bills are the result of a series of recommendations made by a “blue ribbon” committee at the request of the president, intended to modernize the Costa Rican government, considered “stunted” by political leaders and much of the citizenship alike.

Chinchilla, who concludes her term on May 8 next year, met with the heads of the congressional caucuses to personally introduce the 42 proposals contained in the draft legislation, and after the meeting told a press conference that “there is a very positive atmosphere for reforms“.
