Nicoya Lost Two Board Member Seats in the Next Elections
By Oliver Pérez

In the February 7th national elections, 32 candidates for landowner board members from 7 political parties challenged the five seats the Nicoya Municipality will have, and the same number of substitutes. The reduction from seven to five councilors should be the last information supplied by the National Institute of Statistics and Census, which reported that this canton accounts for only 1% of the country’s population; only Liberia will have seven since it has 2% of the national population.

Nicoya reported a population of 41.519, the equivalent of 1%.

The board members, councilmen and town councilors form the Municipal Council. They are something similar to representatives, but with cantonal jurisdiction. According to Municipal Code, it is up to them to set the rates and prices of municipal services, approve concessions, name auditors and agree upon the plebiscites celebration and other mechanisms of referendum.

The councilmen that arrive at City Hall on May 1st will handle around 2,000 million colones for the Nicoya canton.
