 In Costa Rica each political party designates who will reperesent it in the Costa Rican congress.  As such in the elections the citizens vote for the particular political party that they want to represent them in Congress and then the political party has its own internal designations,  As a result the following is the list of the deputies that will serve in the Costa Rican congress for the 2014-2018 legislative period.

The Partido Liberacion Nacional (National Liberation Party) is one of the largest political parties in Costa Rica.   The previous Presidents Oscar Arias and Laura Chincilla both came fromt the National Liberation Party.   This election they did not win the Presidency but they were able to elect 18 deputies to Congress.
