Live blog Costa Ricas 2018 election results

first_imgAfter a volatile and uncertain election season and with a huge percentage of undecideds coming into the final stretch, we simply don’t know much about what is going to unfold tonight in Costa Rica – except that it’s gonna be interesting, folks. As soon as the polls close at 6 p.m., tune in here as we follow the evening’s developments with bated breath.11:24 pm: As Fabricio Alvarado gives his partway-to-victory speech, following that of his newly minted opponent, Carlos Alvarado, it is hard to believe how much this race changed in its final days. Fabricio – the candidates will have to pardon our use of their first names in what will be a very confusing two months to come – was sixth in the CIEP-UCR poll as recently as December, and surged to the lead following the Inter-American Human Rights Court’s ruling on gay marriage and his fierce opposition. Carlos was fifth in that same poll, and surged to second in the final days as those famously undecided voters made up their minds.There is much more to say, but for now we’ll say goodnight. We’ll all need our rest for what’s ahead in the next eight weeks before Round 2 takes place on Easter Sunday.9:48 pm: With 68.3 percent reporting, Fabricio Alvarado holds the lead at 25.2 percent, Carlos Alvarado looks increasingly solid at second with 21.1 percent, and Antonio Alvarez Desanti has 19 percent.If these tendencies hold, this could be seen as the definitive confirmation that Costa Rica’s traditional bipartisan structure is a thing of the past. It is also important to note that no matter what, the next president will not have a majority in the Legislative Assembly, and if a Renovation-PAC second round does take place, the next president will not even have the largest number of legislators (Liberation is in the lead in the legislature with 17 seats).9:20 pm: “It’s going to be a culture war election,” says political science professor Fabián Borges, looking ahead at the second round. “I guess Costa Rica is officially an advanced democracy where we fight over culture and identity more than the economy.” (This, at a time when the Costa Rican economy provides plenty to worry about, and that’s a huge understatement.)It’s hard to overestimate how ground-shaking this election will be if, after decades of bipartisan dominance alongside the Social Christian Unity Part (PUSC), the National Liberation Party (PLN) candidate, Antonio Alvarez Desanti, does not even come in second.Lots to unpack on the Legislative Assembly side: having such a sizable Restoration Party faction within the assembly will mark a significant shift. Meanwhile, the Citizen Action Party, while in second place at the moment on the presidential side, looks to decrease to only 9 seats, down from 13 in the period that will conclude in May.9:10 pm: With 45.7 percent of votes reported, here’s how it stands: 25.9 percent Fabricio Alvarado (National Restoration Party), Carlos Alvarado (Citizen Action Party) at 20.1 percent, Antonio Alvarez (National Liberation Party) at 19.5 percent. Meanwhile, the Assembly is lining up with 16 legislators for Liberation and a whopping 14 for evangelical National Restoration.We could be looking at an Alvarado-Alvarado runoff, but the night’s still young.Meanwhile, Juan Diego Castro, who for some time was the controversial front-runner, is conceding. Supporters of Costa Rica’s National Renovation Party react to the partial poll results for the presidential elections, in San José on Feb. 4, 2018. AFP Photo / Jorge Rendón8:50 pm: The second cutoff held a surprise. While Fabricio Alvarado held the lead, the Citizen Action Party’s Carlos Alvarado moves up within spitting distance of Liberation’s Alvarez (Liberation 19.9 percent, PAC 19.3 percent). A second round of voting is now guaranteed.Opponents of evangelical preacher Fabricio Alvarado around the country are left to wonder: would the charisma-challenged but socially conservative Alvarez Desanti be a stronger opponent against Alvarado, given that he comes closer to matching the preacher’s social conservatism? Or would an Alvarado vs. Alvarado matchup, in which the socially liberal Carlos Alvarado could energize a younger base, be a better bet?8:11 pm: The Supreme Elections Tribunal’s Sesión Solemne is getting underway with the singing of the National Anthem before TSE President Luis Antonio Sobrado presents the first batch of results. National Restoration Party presidential candidate Fabricio Alvarado has a significant lead at 26.7 percent of the vote, with 11.5 percent of voting tables reporting. National Liberation Party (PLN) candidate Antonio Alvarez Desanti is second with 22.6 percent, followed by Carlos Alvarado of the Citizen Action Party (PAC) with 16 percent.7:30 pm: As that first batch of data draws closer, we have a chance to reflect on some of the big questions these results may help us start to answer. Will this unusual election, when, as our columnist Alvaro Murillo has pointed out, a candidate’s party identity has become all but irrelevant, mark the end not only of the 20th century’s bipartisan system but also of remaining loyalty to the traditional National Liberation Party? Have national divisions been redrawn along the lines of social issues such as abortion and gay marriage?Will the chaotic campaign have driven voter turnout even further down (the abstention rate was 31.8 percent in 2014, one of the lowest turnouts in history), or will Fabricio Alvarado’s appeal to conservative voters – or opposition to his religious views – have energized his base or his opponents?Without any doubt, the biggest question of all is whether the approximately one-third of voters who were still undecided when the last opinion polls were conducted, turned out to vote or stayed home, and how they flipped. Stay tuned.6:29 pm: The polls are closed and the waiting game is on. Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) officials have announced they expect to have their first set of results for us at approximately 8 pm. Until then, we’ll be parsing available information about voter turnout, although our correspondents’ visits to voting centers around the country showed variations that seemed to befit this unpredictable election season. Some centers were jam-packed, while others were sluggish; Citizen Action Party (PAC) supporters predictably swarmed university neighborhoods, while we heard reports of massive movements of National Restoration Party voters in rural areas.Certainly one data point to watch in the coming hours is estimated voter turnout in rural and urban areas, although it’s a bit of a guessing game as to whom that will favor. The voting station in Cipreses de Curridabat, an eastern San José suburb, was packed at approximately 1 pm.

Low Inventory Drives the Hottest US Markets

first_imgLow Inventory Drives the Hottest U.S. Markets The winter cold sent home buyers scrambling for shelter, with home buyers in the beginning weeks of 2017 facing an increasingly scarce home market.A study from Realtor.com shows housing supply hitting record lows and demand staying strong despite winter traditionally being the slowest time of the year for the market. Homes are selling 4 percent faster in January 2017 than they were this time last year, despite record high prices. The reason? Record low home inventory.“We saw evidence of a stronger-than-normal off-season starting last September and October due to pent-up demand and surging interest from first-time buyers,” said Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist with Realtor.com. “The downside to this strong off-season is that we have started 2017 with a new low volume of available homes for sale and a new high for prices.”The site compiled a list of the 20 hottest housing markets in America so far this year, with California leading the nation with 12 including eight in the top 10. San Francisco sits firmly at number 1, with another California city, Santa Rosa, falling seven spots to number 19. The newest entrant to the top 20 list, Tampa, shot up 5 spots from December and is the only Florida market in the top 20.The site’s experts say the median list price reaches its lowest point in January. However, the current median of $250,000 is holding steady from December and is 10 percent higher than last year; a record for January.Smoke said buyers are becoming increasingly anxious as mortgage rates continue to rise since the November 2016 election and the Fed’s move to raise a key interest rate last year.“The threat of rates approaching multiyear highs in the months ahead is creating a sense of urgency,” Smoke said.To read the list on Realtor.com click here.

USbased investor acquires distressed BoC deposit

first_imgInvestment firm MeritKapital has brokered the sale of a high value Bank of Cyprus (BoC) deposit that was affected by the cash seizure imposed as part of the island’s €10 billion bailout, it emerged on Thursday.“The distressed deposit, belonging to an entity unrelated to Meritkapital Limited, has been purchased by a large US-based investor for a competitive purchase price,” a news statement said.It is believed that that this was the first such transaction, the statement said, demonstrating “that a distinct market now exists for this type of distressed BoC deposit.”“With many buyers wishing to invest in these distressed deposits, an alternative solution now exists for many large deposit holders who are in need of liquidity or who wish to diversify their holdings.”As part of the bailout, international lenders demanded the winding down of Laiki Bank and the restructuring of BoC, which entailed being lumped with most of Laiki’s assets, including €9.2 billion in emergency liquidity assistance.BoC shareholders were wiped out while large depositors saw a 47.5 per cent haircut– or bail in — on deposits to recapitalise the lender.Deposit holders are subject to temporary restrictions, which limit cash withdrawals and money transfers.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.

international events (Source: File) Top News India’s legendary long jumper Anju Bobby George said that if Indian athletes want to perform well at world stage they need to participate and compete regularly at top level international events The only Indian athlete to clinch a medal in the World Championships said that many Indian athletes focus on training but not showing up at the international events Anju who clinched a bronze medal in World championships 2003 feels that Indian athletes just like the European and American athletes should have their own managers “Infrastructure is much better now than in our time but the main thing is that we are stuck at where we are because our athletes are still believing only in training we are not going out for international competitions” was quoted as saying by PTI “Actually we are doing only the training part which is the 50 per cent part But peaking in competitions and peaking in high level competitions through Grand Prix and Diamond League events is not happening in India” she said Anju also explained about how can Indian athlete attain success at the global stage saying”We are still believing that we can train hard in the country and go for World Championships or Olympics That is not the correct way that is not going to give you a medal in the Olympics or World Championships “That is not the way how the Americans or the Europeans are doing You need to take part in other top level international competitions I was doing in such a way (like the Americans or the Europeans were doing) that was why I got success at that level” she added She said that government should sanction the money for these top level international events”Sanctioning money is the government’s job but it is also about athletes acting like a professionals “You are a professional athlete and your manager or coach should take care of everything…your travel your training your schedule etc All these you have to do it is all about bringing professionalism in yourself It is not the federation’s job The Americans and the Europeans they are professional athletes and they are going all by their own “This is to be done individually If you are in top 10 or top 20 you will get entry in these big international events including in the Diamond League series You have to apply for these events and if you are among the top bracket you will get invited” she further elaborated Anju also feels that athletes should be groomed at the junior level so that they can become consistent at the senior level “Actually our juniors are doing well we have a junior world record holder in javelin (Neeraj Chopra) But there is a gap between the juniors and the seniors We need to bridge this gap and we have to focus more on youth That is what the AFI is doing now” she said Anju stressed upon the fact that lack of interest shown by the state governments to host National Championships was the biggest reason for the athletes for not being able to compete in tough weather conditions “No state is ready to host championships it’s very expensive The states do not want to hold these events and it will have to be staged somewhere So it is being held in this kind of weather During this time South India is better suited but no south Indian states was ready to host these events” She also made up her mind to approach the International Olympic Committee about 2004 Olympics results as all the athletes who finished on the podium — Russians Tatyana Lebedeva Irina Simagina and Tatyana Kotova — failed drugs tests in other competitions Anju was ranked fifth with an effort of 683m and the other two athletes finsihing below Anju Australia’s Bronwyn Thompson and Britain’s Jade Johnson are also helping her in preparing the documents “We are still preparing the document we have to collect a lot of documents It is not easy “We cannot give a vague statement we have to give a strong case solid evidence But things are happening The AFI is

state finance ministers met in Shillong to discuss the goods and services tax (GST) It asked the Centre to keep taxes on petroleum productsliquor and entry of goods out of the GSTs ambit It also asked the Centre to devise a constitutional framework to compensate states for any loss of revenue due to the introduction of the GST The old excise-based tax system in India leads to a cumulative effect of taxes on inputs multiplying the taxes on outputswhich cascade through the economy and add to the cost of productionthereby disadvantaging exports Under a proper GSTthis cascading would be removedand exports would be free of taxation This will not happen in India if certain goods are exempt from the GST (so that states can levy their own taxes on them) Exemptions do not permit taxes on inputs to be fully offset against those on outputs The proposal for a unified authority to implement an integrated GST makes perfect sense in an increasingly competitive world With the economic crisismany European countries have moved towards the value-added tax (VAT) frameworkwhich does not discourage exports In Chinathe centrally administered shared VAT is rapidly replacing provincial business sales taxes on key services such as transport and telecom Substantial reductions in the tax burdens of firms have been demonstrated as a resultimproving the competitive position of the economy India has suffered due to the continuation of the colonial systemwhich split the main tax bases between various levels of government This severely handicapped the design and implementation of a GST As Satya Poddar and I had argued in a submission to the last Finance Commission (GST Reforms and Intergovernmental Considerations in India)the Indian GST has three main disadvantages Firstthe distinction between goods and services is becoming increasingly untenable Secondcascading emerges due to exemptions and gaps in tax bases This vitiates the GSTs main advantage Thirdcomplexity is a serious drawback Multiple administrations increase the burden of compliance on companies and traders Exemptions also lead to a loss of information This facilitates evasion from both the GST and income taxesadding to the incentives of informalityas in both Mexico and Pakistan Mexico has recently acted decisively to fix its VAT by eliminating exemptions (apart from on unprocessed food) and multiple rates in order to generate more efficient production and export possibilities The information generated by the VAT is also expected to increase income tax collections without the need to increase rates and reduce informality and cheating Exempting unprocessed food does not affect the information chain andtogether with the introduction of a universal pensionlargely took care of distributional concerns A unified administrationsuch as that proposed in Indiadoes not ensure exemptions and holes will not creep in to protect this sector or that This is shortsighted and should be avoided at all costs While exemptions provide some relief to specific sectors relative to othersthey reintroduce cascading and make the whole system more inefficient They also give rise to demands for further exemptions to compete with trading partners The Australian model provides an appropriate precedent for Indiaalthough there are issues of overall revenue generation and state-level autonomy In Australiathe single administrative authority for the GST was facilitated by an agreement that all resources collected would be returned to the states through the equalisation framework of the Commonwealth Grants Commission In Indiathe states share of the GST could be returned to them under a framework to be devised by the Finance Commission whether on an equalisation basis or not is another issue To the extent that the efficiency of collection is improvedthe tax to GDP ratio increasesthereby benefiting all states significantly But the issue of state-level tax autonomy remains A more appropriate instrument for this is for states to impose a surcharge on an integrated income tax Removing petroleum goods from the integrated GST is a bad idea Howevera state-level piggyback or a surcharge on a Central carbon tax is a possibilityas argued in my paper with Nicholas Stern (Effective Carbon Taxes in India) The issue of a state-level tax on liquor is more acceptableas it is largely a final consumption good Howeverindustrial alcohol must be subject to the GST Ensuring that no state loses from the reform is important and is needed for political economy considerations This requires a linkage with the transfer system A similar provision was critical to ensuring provincial support for the shared VAT in China in 1994 It should appropriately be an important issue in this
