Arroios: Madalena Natividade is the new president of the board – Portugal

Arroios: Madalena Natividade is the new president of the board

She was born in Mozambique and came to Portugal as a returnee. He lived with his family in a slum and always had to work to pay his bills. He wants to put Arroios on the map for good reasons.

I fell asleep many times with the noise of rain on the zinc”, recalls Madalena Natividade, 46, when talking to SATURDAY in Jardim Constantino, in the parish of Arroios. “I miss you…”, he laughs, recalling his childhood in a slum in Lisbon. Soon after, we would be interrupted by the kiosk manager. “She’s the new president of the parish council, isn’t she?” He wanted to complain about security issues in the place, especially at night.

Madalena Natividade, unknown to the general public, was one of the winners of the Autárquicas last September 26th. She was chosen by voters in Arroios (a central and media-friendly parish in Lisbon) to take the seat where Margarida Martins has sat for the last eight years. The former president of Abraço was one of the faces of the defeat of the PS/Livre coalition in the capital and the effect of Margarida Martins’ latest controversy can be seen in the streets of the parish – the outgoing president was filmed by SATURDAY to use resources from the council (a car and a tax) in their personal purchases, many of which (made on the 31 de Janeiro market) were not paid.
