It was on his arrival at the PSD National Council, which meets this Thursday in Lisbon, that Rui Rio accused the party’s critics of “destroying everything” that the party has achieved in the local authorities.
I deeply regret that the party has reached this state that, after local elections in which we did not register an arithmetic victory, but registered a political victory (…) within 15 days, they are already trying to destroy everything the party has achieved “, said in statements to journalists.
The current president of the PSD again said which will not announce, for now, whether or not he is re-candidate for the party’s leadership in the next direct. Justifying it is the imminence of a political crisis.
Because what I understand is that we are on the verge of having a serious political crisis in Portugal, the budget may not pass, it means that there may be early legislative elections and I think that any Portuguese, that any PSD militant understands that it is prudent we wait for the budget vote”.
A PSD leadership will propose the holding of internal elections on December 4th. If there is a second round, it will take place a week later, that is, on the 11th.
