The future legislative fraction of the National Restoration Party (PRN) announced on Wednesday that it will not vote for the Citizen Action Party (PAC) in the elections for the Presidency of Congress on May 1st, although it will support a shared Legislative Directorate.
For the PRN, there is a clear mandate from Costa Ricans who only granted 10 legislators to the new ruling party bloc and elected 47 other popular representatives to provide a balance and exercise responsible opposition.
The head of the elected fraction, Carlos Avendaño, informed that the 14 congressmen of the PRN will not give their votes to PAC, as will the National Liberation Party (PLN).
The also legislator-elect Jonathan Prendas said that the desire of the entire fraction is to carry forward a constructive position and build bridges that are necessary to promote an agenda that benefits Costa Ricans.
“We do not think it is appropriate for the PAC to control the Legislative Assembly, when that was not the mandate of the people, but we are more willing to collaborate with a series of projects necessary for the progress of the country,” added Prendas.
