Filipe Anacoreta Correia: CDS “are not people”, “don’t be confused with personalities”

The president of the National Council of the CDS defended this Sunday that, despite “regretting” the disaffiliation of militants, the “CDS are not people”, and, “as much as some want to proclaim the death” of the party, “that day has not yet has arrived”.

At a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Lisbon, Filipe Anacoreta Correia reacted to the disaffiliation of party militants, such as Adolfo Mesquita Nunes or António Pires de Lima, saying that “the CDS are not people” and “not to be confused with personalities or with the dimension that each personality can have”.

“We follow the news of their decision to leave the party with regret — we don’t celebrate it, we regret it — but we are sure that a party never gets confused with these personalities and, for better or for worse, we know, at the CDS, that its historical process was always accompanied by crises associated with new cycles of leadership”.

Stating that the party may “possibly be experiencing” one of these moments of crisis, and recognizing that “it is always a challenging” and “difficult” moment, the president of the CDS National Council stressed that, in the past, the party “has always survived to these different moments”.

“As much as some want to proclaim the death of this party, there is one thing I am absolutely sure of: that day has not yet arrived,” he said.
