Legislative: Costa says he did not see an interview with Socrates and does not respond to criticism


The secretary general of the PS told journalists several times today that he did not see the television interview given by former socialist leader José Sócrates on Friday, during which António Costa was criticized.

In an interview with CNN, former prime minister José Sócrates noted that it was with him, as leader of the PS, that the socialists achieved their only absolute majority in the 2005 legislative elections.

Then, he snarled António Costa: “Whoever wants an absolute majority should perhaps start by not belittling the only one that the PS had”. At the end of a street action in Leiria, faced with this statement by José Sócrates, the current secretary general of the PS and prime minister did not make any comment, limiting himself to saying three times: “I did not have the opportunity to see “.

When a journalist asked António Costa if José Sócrates is “a toxic asset”, the socialist leader reacted, countering: “Toxic is not voting in the legislative elections”.

“What is toxic is that we do not believe in a policy of valuing the income of families, either by increasing wages or reducing taxes”, he declared.
