Legislatives: Rio considers TAP to be a disgrace and wants to reprivatize it – Legislatives


The president of the PSD today considered that “TAP is a disgrace”, it has been “a drain” of money, “it does not do any public service, it only serves Lisbon airport”, and stated that it wants to reprivatize the national air carrier.

Rui Rio was speaking on TVI, in a debate with the leader of the CDS-PP, Francisco Rodrigues dos Santos, who also defended that TAP “should be privatized, as well as all transport companies owned by the State”.

Then, the president of the PSD considered that “TAP is a disgrace”. Asked about and the company is to privatize, Rui Rio replied: “Yes, yes. Do you think that TAP is in this state, permanently bleeding public finances?” According to the leader of the Social Democrats, “instead of serving the country as a whole, it does not do any public service, it only serves Lisbon airport, abandoning Faro, abandoning Porto, abandoning the autonomous regions”.

“This doesn’t make any sense. TAP, which was a drain for many years, the PSD/CDS Government privatized and well, and Dr. António Costa, as soon as he arrived, made the first mistake, which was to partially nationalize, at the time, and now, as a result of this, everything has been completely nationalized”, he added.
