António and Catarina are divorced, but still in love – Portugal

It was a debate between honey and gall, without interruptions and where the leaders of PS and BE passed blame on the end of the relationship. Costa hinted that he likes another: the PCP

António Costa and Catarina Martins debated this evening on RTP face to face and, more than talking about the near future, they used the airtime to attack each other – albeit without any animosity – about the rupture between the two parties that has lasted since the vote. of the 2020 budget, in which the Left Bloc did not accompany the PS, PCP and Os Verdes. This point was highlighted several times by the PS leader, accusing the leadership of the Bloco of irresponsibility and at the same time leaving for the future (everyone seems to have agreed that there will be no absolute majority) an explicit wink at the PCP and the Greens.

“Because it’s responsibility that we talk about. I’m sorry, but who in October 2020, at the most serious moment of the pandemic, made the decision to break with the PS, with the PCP and with the PEV, failing us in the 2021 Budget, no he had a responsible attitude. And he didn’t this year again.”

Another frontal attack by António Costa was what he called “an ideological bravado” by the Bloc that would cost, according to his accounts, 30 billion euros of public debt. The proposal in question (Costa even cited the page where it appeared in the BE program) would be the nationalization of REN, ANA, CTT, EDP and GALP. With irony, Costa also noted that the Bloc stopped using the word “nationalization”, instead using “deprivatization”. He called the change a “light” version.
