right wing austerity

Portugal Politics

Listen up guys.

Left leaning party (PS - socialist party) which lost the general elections in Portugal just formed a coalition with far-left (BE - left bloc) and the communist party (PCP) and now are the majority.

The portuguese parliament has fallen and it’s now up to our President (Cavaco Silva) to decide if they will be allowed to govern or if we will vote again.


(edit: I apologize, wrong choice of title. Media outlets have been calling it a “golpe de estado” which translates to “coup d’etat”.)
