PAN leader refuses to make “scorched earth opposition” to future government

The PAN spokeswoman, Inês Sousa Real, refused this Saturday to make a “scorched earth opposition” to a future government, after the next legislative, but stressed that she is unavailable to support those who “violate the principles” of the party.

“We cannot have the country go through this social and economic crisis and a climate crisis and hide in a scorched earth opposition, which does not build bridges and does not present solutions for the country”, he said.

Inês Sousa Real, who was speaking to journalists during a visit to the Pirescoxe market, in Santa Iria da Azoia, in the municipality of Loures, district of Lisbon, stressed that, after the elections on the 30th, the PAN will be defending its proposals. .

In a campaign action in this market, the leader of the People-Animals-Nature (PAN) party was congratulated by a marketer, who considered that Inês Sousa Real has “courage to say that she governs both with the PS and with the PSD”.

“At least, it gives a demonstration that it is Portuguese”, said Joaquim Henriques, with the PAN spokesperson replying that it is necessary “to be, in the first place, committed to the country and to the answers for the people”.

Despite the praise for the leader of the PAN, this marketer, who sells bedding and has been in this market for 50 years, warned that he votes “always PSD” and that “it is not easy to change” the orientation of the vote.

Joaquim Henriques noted, however, that the PAN has proposals he does not agree with, such as bullfighting, which he said he did not attend, justifying that “people have to be free to choose”.

“For me to ban it is wrong and it’s the only thing that I don’t really agree with you”, he underlined, noting that, despite never having gone to a bullfight, he is not against the people who go.

Already the deputy and head of the PAN list for Lisbon, who has been distributing pamphlets, cloth bags and markers with vegetarian recipes, warned that the party is not “against people”, but “against animal suffering”.

Speaking out against the prime minister saying that “if he doesn’t win, he doesn’t govern with anyone”, the 72-year-old trader said goodbye to Inês Sousa Real by saying that he hopes to see her “in the PSD Government”.

In statements to journalists, the PAN spokeswoman indicated that the leading party will have “always present” its “identity component”, in the event of negotiations with the future government.

“It is evident that the PAN will not support a government that wants to promote bullfighting in our country. The PAN never said that it was available to integrate a government that violates its principles”, he stressed.

During the visit to the Pirescoxe market, Inês Sousa Real was also asked by another marketer who proposed an application for mobile phones for “people to vote” in times of the covid-19 pandemic.

“So, are the infected people going to vote? They are people like the others, they are entitled, but if there is so much application for so many things, why not create an application”, he proposed, immediately warning that the tip was “free” and without “rights of author”.

The PAN leader told the fair to follow the “concern” of voting by voters in isolation, due to covid-19, and noted that the party proposed to carry out “a study for electronic voting”, but the measure “was rejected”. .

Sousa Real also traveled to Amadora to distribute political propaganda and contact with the population, then followed by train to Lisbon.
