Rui Rio violated statutes by imposing candidates for municipal authorities – Politics

The national leadership of the PSD violated the party’s statutes by imposing candidates for the chambers of Barcelos, Lourinhã and Castelo Branco without the names indicated by the respective municipalities, according to the deliberations taken this Thursday by the council of national jurisdiction.

However, the party’s ‘court’ did not invalidate the heads of list in those municipalities so as not to harm the candidates who are already on the ground. Rather, he preferred to invite the councils to ratify the names indicated by Rui Rio’s management or, if they wish, to propose other candidates. Given the short deadline for delivering the lists to the court, which ends on August 2, the local structures prefer to keep the candidates chosen by Rio. In the case of Barcelos, “the council is committed to the candidacy of Mário Constantino”, he revealed to CM the leader of the district of Braga, Paulo Cunha.
