Election Results


For all those interested, here are the election results. With the PSD coalition not grabbing the majority of the votes as expected, other parties are now jostling to find out who will be the preferred partner(s) for the next four years.

Interestingly, Chega, a right-wing party, has now attracted 8% of the vote. However, in today’s press release, they said that they would never be able to have a working relationship with the governing party.

In a press statement this evening, the leader of the CDS-PP/Madeira and number two of the PSD/CDS-PP coalition, Rui Barreto, said today that he does not close the door to a governance agreement with PAN (People-Animals-Nature) and the Liberal Initiative (IL) because of their ideological closeness. 

In specifying, the centrist said that in the case of IL, the “CDS has always had in its ideological spectrum liberals and conservatives” and that PAN “is a humanist party, it is a party with a set of concerns” that do not conflict with what the CDS represents.

If it carries on like this, every party will be part of the coalition.
