During the 11th report of the Supreme Electoral Court (TSE), the 67.85 percent (4,646) of 6,847 voting centers distributed throughout the country and in 42 countries were counted, and Figueres, with 27.36 percent, is first.
Meanwhile, Chaves is second, with 16.67 percent of the valid votes cast in this Sunday’s general elections.
But the contender in third place, evangelical preacher Fabricio Alvarado, of the New Republic Party, with 15.26 percent of the valid votes, still believes that a comeback is possible and therefore, he did not acknowledge his defeat.
For the TSE, these results are preliminary, as the final ones will begin to be confirmed as of Tuesday.
The 6,767 voting centers distributed throughout the country, to which 3,541,908 Costa Ricans were illegible to elect the country’s president, two vice presidents and 57 legislators to the Legislative Assembly, closed at 18:00 hours, local time.
