Left way for Portugal

Young European Socialists express their full support to Antonio Costa’s willingness to form a coalition with the other left wing parties in Portugal.

We oppose the decision of the President to ask the conservatives to form a minority government when a majority clearly exists among the left, led by Antonio Costa. We consider the President’s decision, as well as his comments, to be partial and to not coping with his obligation of neutrality, in order to prevent a progressive coalition to be put in place in Portugal.
We invite the right to respect the result of the election which was a clear disapproval of the outgoing government, and gave a majority to anti-austerity parties which are now openly working together to try and form a coalition.
