Montenegro believes that the country will be able to create more wealth and opportunities

The president of the PSD, Luís Montenegro, said this Saturday that he believes that the country will be able to “generate more opportunities”, create “more wealth” and retain young people, defending that “it is worth believing in Portugal”.

“I want to corroborate what the President of the Republic said, I really believe in the future of Portugal. I hope that we will be able to generate more opportunities, create more wealth and retain our young people”, stated Luís Montenegro.

Speaking to journalists, Montenegro refused to talk about the letters exchanged with the Prime Minister, António Costa, and the Minister of Infrastructure, João Galamba, who was booed by the people on his arrival at the ceremony, saying he only wanted to talk about “very important issues” of the country.

“Today, I want to say that it is worth believing in Portugal. The country can and should know that the PSD does not give up on Portugal. The leader of the PSD wants to be prime minister, but it is not to fulfill any whim, it is to give more development to the country,” he said, refusing to “put aside” the “cases” that have marked the political agenda.

“It is one thing to talk about these cases, another thing is to talk only about these cases. I talk about these cases, they deserve political treatment, in the sovereign bodies and in the activity of political parties and I will not exempt myself from that. Portuguese may one day think that’s all I’m worried about,” he said. .

Noting that he is “concerned more than anything” about the country’s future, Montenegro defended the importance of cohesion public policies.

“I didn’t wake up to this today. For many years I have been insistent in defending public policies for cohesion in the territory, public policies that can positively discriminate against low-density territories and public policies that can give hope to young people”, he noted. .

Giving the Douro region and its “enormous potential” as an example, the president of the PSD resorted, like the President of the Republic, to agricultural work to criticize “the centralist power of Lisbon” that does not invest in the interior territories and low population density. .

“We have to sow to reap, like farmers do. You have to sow, work the land and then reap. But those who don’t sow and those who don’t work the land, won’t reap later. We have to take care of our harvest, but for that we have to sow the cohesion of the country”, he said. .

Questioned whether this cultivation also had to be done in the Government, Montenegro agreed: “Of course”. .

“Coming here is a good way of understanding that the future of Portugal depends a lot on having the capacity to have policies that generate greater cohesion, whether social, territorial or generational”, he added. .

Saying he was “unfairly accused” of not presenting political guidelines for the country, Montenegro also highlighted the constitutional revision process and the principle of territorial and generational cohesion. .

“Occupying the territory, taking advantage of the human and natural potential that the country has and having the capacity to retain our young people is a plan that no one can fail”, he said, considering that the country has ahead “a giant task” of facing the “demographic decline”. .
