San José, Jan 25 (EFE).- The president of Costa Rica, Carlos Alvarado, will attend the investiture of Xiomara Castro as president of Honduras, the Government confirmed on Tuesday. “In support of the democratic process in the region, the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado, will travel to Honduras this Thursday, January 27, to attend the inauguration of Xiomara Castro, the first woman elected as president of that country,” indicates a statement from the Costa Rican Presidential House. Alvarado will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Rodolfo Solano, and they will return to Costa Rica at the end of the same Thursday. The Costa Rican government has not reported, for the moment, bilateral meetings planned by the president or the foreign minister with dignitaries or international delegations that will be present at the handover ceremony in Honduras. Xiomara Castro, 62, is the first woman to reach the Presidency of Honduras, in addition to being the one who has obtained the most votes in the country’s political history and perhaps the only ruler whose election has not been questioned by any sector of the opposition. The president obtained 1.7 million votes in the general elections of last November 28 with the flag of the Partido Libertad y Refundación (Libre, left).
