“Be ashamed of what you are doing”, says Chicão – Portugal

'Be ashamed of what you are doing', says Chicao

Chicao attacks opponents’ inconsistency and says that even the party’s finances advise the suspension of a Congress that he asked for two weeks ago, but for which he believes it will be difficult to get funding. Jurisdiction Council clarifies that it decided to consider the National Council null and void. Supporters of the leader argue that this decision can be null.

Francisco Rodrigues dos Santos says he wants to unite the party before the anticipated legislative sessions, but he shot his internal critics to death. With the minutes of former meetings of the National Council, he pointed out the inconsistency of what those now accuse him of an “institutional coup attempt” for wanting to cancel the Congress that was scheduled for the 27th and 28th of November.

Two weeks ago, Rodrigues dos Santos wanted to bring the Congress forward and managed to do so, despite the opposition of Nuno Melo’s supporters. Now, he wants to postpone it and, to prove the inconsistency of those who criticize him for dealing in this way with the political crisis, he used old minutes of the two times – in 2003 and in 2013 – when Paulo Portas decided to cancel the conclave because of crisis, the Iraq War and the “irrevocable”.

Chicão told the national councilors of a “Convocation issued 19 hours before the National Council”, at a time when Portas was the leader of the CDS. The urgency of this call was “justified at the time with an irrevocable”, when the resignation of Paulo Portas from the coalition government with Pedro Passos Coelho was imminent.
