Costa Rica: Costa Rica expected to elect Laura Chinchilla

Costa Rican voters appear likely to elect Laura Chinchilla the country’s first female president, a protege of Nobel laureate Oscar Arias who holds a nearly 20-point lead over two male rivals ahead of Sunday’s balloting. Laura Chinchilla’s election would mark another political triumph in the storied career of outgoing President Arias, who has been regularly called on to put out Central America’s political fires. Laura Chinchilla was Arias’ vice president before launching her campaign.
