Marcelo does not know support for families, but “there is very high expectation”

“There is great expectation” about the support measures for families that the Government will announce, says the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

António Costa’s executive will announce on Monday an emergency package to help families face the rise in prices.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa says he does not know the Government’s measures, but considers that there is great expectation and that it is necessary to act quickly.

“No one knows the exact measurements. Neither do I, the Prime Minister is in Mozambique, but there is a very high expectation”, declared the head of state.

The President says that the Government and the opposition are in agreement on the need for support to families and companies, although with different approaches, and hopes that the measures will be in force “at least until the end of the year”.

In addition to inflation, another issue that focuses the concerns of the Portuguese is Health, points out Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who challenges the Government to implement the funds entered in the State Budget.

“In Health, advancing in fundamental diplomas to put the SNS machine on its feet, revised and adjusted, and on the other hand the attention of opposition parties to the fact that there is money in this State Budget in the field of Health that has not yet been spent and that can be spent until the end of the year”, declared the President, on the day that the newspaper “Expresso” reported that investment in Health is falling by 33%.
