"Error" leads Câmara to share Rui Moreira’s re-application on Facebook Book Fair

The Porto City Council shared a publication on the Facebook of the Book Fair about the re-candidacy of Rui Moreira, but the municipality has already come to guarantee that it was a “mistake by an employee”. She was an employee of the chamber who, for professional reasons, had access to the Facebook account of the 'Feira do Livro do Porto' and, by mistake, instead of sharing the 'post' on her personal account, she shared it on the official Facebook account of 'Porto Book Fair'. We have already asked the employee for clarification and we are going to open an internal investigation process", refers the municipality in response to the Lusa agency, following a statement from the PSD/Porto. The PSD/Porto council accused today the independ...

Covid-19: Rui Rio demands the Government "heavier measures" in Lisbon and Braga

The president of the PSD, Rui Rio, defended this Wednesday that the Government must have the courage to take stronger measures in the districts of Lisbon and Braga. There is the problem of the councils that are shooting up, namely Lisbon and Braga, and then the Government must have the courage to take heavier measures, as is logical, otherwise this will shoot up”, said the PSD leader, reacting to the announcement that these two councils will not advance to the next phase of deconfinement. Assuming that in Lisbon it can be "more complicated" toughen measures, Rui Rio stressed the need for national authorities to be "firm so as not to spoil everything that is done", since in recent days the number of cases “It's gotten worse than we co...
