António Costa admits that the Government negotiated and tried to approve the Budget until “the last minute” – Politics

António Costa said this Monday that the government had done “everything in its power” so that the 2022 State Budget had been approved.

In an interview with RTP, the prime minister said that the government went “to the limit” in the negotiations” and tried to have the budget proposal approved until “the last minute”.

As for the early legislative elections, scheduled by the President of the Republic for January 30, António Costa guarantees that the main ambition of the socialist party is to achieve an absolute majority to guarantee political stability in Portugal. “The benchmark of stability is the PS”, he guarantees, calling for a “stable solution” to the Portuguese. However, “even with a majority, we will not stop dialoguing,” stated Costa.

The prime minister does not close the door to new understandings on the left, putting the hypothesis of a new version of the contraption if it is not possible to obtain an absolute majority for the socialist party and the partners on the left to change their attitude.
