Portuguese State of Emergency Could Last Until Mid-May

The Economic Journal states that the Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa admitted, together with the leaders of political parties that there is the possibility that the state of emergency (SToE) in Portugal will last until the 17th of May, which means that the SToE could be renewed two more times. However, beyond that date “is not seen as being feasible by the government, given the detrimental economic impact the country is currently experiencing.

António Costa, who spent all day in meetings yesterday, apparently gained strength after hearing the  statements of President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who on Tuesday already predicted the future for the country.  The President stated that “If we want to win freedom in May, in the sense of a progressive return to normality, we must win the battle in April by remaining vigilant.”
