True, he refused to comment on Chega’s complaints about the actions of the President of the Council of the Republic, arguing that he does not comment on the “internal problems of the organs of sovereignty”, and the fact that the President of the Republic (public relations) is the problem, considering that the Portuguese “worries” are the problems in the SNS or those resulting from Inflation increase. “These are the problems that concern the Portuguese,” said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, in Belém, speaking to reporters, hours after he received a delegation from Chiga led by the party chief.
Andre Ventura went to Belém to say that the way in which the President of the Council of the Republic, Socialist Augusto Santos Silva, is running the business, indicates an “escalation of physical, verbal and political conflict” in Parliament.
The leader of the far-right party indicated that “the atmosphere is very tense,” and stressed that “no one wants to see situations in Parliament as we have seen in other countries in the world, where there are deputies who quarrel with each other, almost to an extent.” He claimed that “everything is happening because the atmosphere inside the bloody circle, where the political energies were supposed to be dispersed, is crowded and limited by the President of the Council of the Republic.”
After listening to the Chega delegation, Marcelo preferred to stress that what matters is SNS problems.
According to Chiga, “the only person who can catch Augusto Santos Silva’s attention is Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa” and it is up to the head of state “to ensure that the atmosphere is calm”, after he requested his intervention, “even if in a discreet manner”. “More important than the President of the Republic saying that the President of the Council of the Republic was wrong, is that Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa speaks to Augusto Santos Silva and says to him: ‘This cannot continue’.
The meeting, which lasted about 45 minutes, was accompanied by Andre Ventura, the leadership of the parliamentary group, at the request of Shiga. Andre Ventura also told reporters that he had a “feeling” that PR “was receptive to the arguments ‘he heard,’ no matter what actions he might take”, and that he was “sensitive to the position of the absolute majority and potentially a muzzle of democracy he faces.” The country “and also” on the arguments of the continued restriction of freedom.
