Once the abrupt suspension of almost all election campaigns on Tuesday was overcome, candidates for Belém return to the road today and take the opportunity to cover as much territory as possible before Portugal returns to confinement.
The positive test of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 of the current President of the Republic and re-running for office, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, echoed in all election campaigns and put a ‘brake on’ them, but the successive negative results that the head of State received over Tuesday revived a campaign that now ‘chases the loss’ while the country does not return to confinement to mitigate the spread of covid-19.
Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa had no initiatives planned until January 18, but will now remain in isolation at his residence, in Cascais, Lisbon district, for the next few days.
Candidate Marisa Matias heads to the autonomous regions of Madeira and the Azores. During the morning, the blocker has a meeting with the mayor of Funchal, Miguel Silva Gouveia, and another with the Mayor of Santa Cruz, Filipe Sousa.
In the meantime, head to Ponta Delgada, in the Azores for a meeting with women who fight domestic violence, at 16:00 local (17:00 in Lisbon).
André Ventura and Ana Gomes caravans converge in Santarém.
The candidate supported by Chega André Ventura speaks in the middle of the afternoon in Santarém and heads to Portalegre for a rally at the Center for Performing Arts in Portalegre.
The former Socialist MEP, on the other hand, has a fuller agenda and also begins the day in Santarém with a meeting with the president of the Intermunicipal Community of Lezíria do Tejo and the mayor of Almeirim.
This is followed by a meeting with the Santarém PSP district commander and a visit to these facilities and a visit to Santarém Hospital. At 18:00 the candidate participates and presents her commitments for the Presidency of the Republic to Internet users in the online session “Portugal is with you, Portugal is with us”.
João Ferreira recovers the agenda he suspended on Tuesday and at 10:15 am he meets with the socialist deputy Isabel Moreira, who declared his support, in Praça das Flores, in Lisbon. He goes on to deliver support from ecologists to his candidacy, which will also include the national representative and former deputy of the ENP Heloísa Apolónia, at Jardim Amália Rodrigues.
Like Ana Gomes, the communist will dedicate the afternoon to an ‘online’ direct to talk about micro, small and medium companies.
Vitorino Silva and Tiago Mayan Gonçalves are the only ones heading north.
The director and founder of RIR (Reacir, Incluir e Reciclar) starts with an initiative with university students in Coimbra, visits a biological garden in the Quinta do Passal Park in the early afternoon, goes to the Couce Village, in Valongo, and ends, at the end of the afternoon, with a walk from Avenida Egas Moniz, in Penafiel, to the Sanctuary of Sameiro.
“Tino de Rans” maintains the intention to end the campaign when the confinement that will accompany the renewal of the state of emergency comes into force.
The liberal candidate, on the other hand, has only one item on the agenda, a meeting, at 15:00, with the Mayor of Porto, Rui Moreira.
