The National Restoration Party candidate led pre-election polls by a slim margin, but was soundly defeated by his opponent, ruling Citizen's Action Party candidate Carlos Alvarado.

With more than 95% of the vote counted, Carlos Alvarado led Fabricio Alvarado 60.8% to 39.2%.

Fabricio Alvarado is a former legislator, evangelical singer, and onetime co-anchor of CBN's Mundo Cristiano, Spanish Christian World News. He ran on a pro-life, pro-traditional family platform.

He came in first place in the first round of the presidential contest as many Evangelical Christians and Catholics supported him after the Inter-American Court of Human Rights called on Costa Rica to allow same-sex marriage.

Alvarado opposed allowing homosexuals and lesbians to marry, his opponent Carlos Alvarado favored it.

After officials tabulated most of the ballots in the final runoff election Sunday, Alvarado realized the obvious and told supporters that he was not sad.

"No matter what happens, glory be to God," Alvarado said. "We are calm. Because our work was worthy, clean, and our message did win elections."

He said he and many other Costa Ricans will continue to defend traditional values.

President–elect Carlos Alvarado will be sworn in to a four-year term on May 8th.
