Published by Semanario Universidad, the most recent poll shows that Chaves, presidential candidate for the Partido Progreso Social Democratico (PPSD), has 41.4 percent of the votes, while former president Figueres (1994-1998), of the Partido Liberacion Nacional (PLN), has 38 percent.
Between the 24th and 28th of this month, CIEP-UCR experts interviewed 1,15 Tico voters by telephone, with a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent.
Hence, Chaves could have a minimum value of 38.3 and a maximum of 44.5 percent among those decided to vote on April 3, and Figueres receives a minimum of 34.9 and a maximum of 41.2 percent.
According to the pollsters, this makes Figueres’ maximum higher than Chaves’ minimum, which allows concluding that there is no statistically significant difference, that is to say that they are statistically tied.
For Sunday’s ballot 3.5 million Ticos are summoned, who will choose between these two candidates the one who will lead the destiny of Costa Rica from May 8, 2022 to May 8, 2026.
