Miguel Albuquerque – Ignores Press

The outgoing President of the Regional Government, Miguel Albuquerque, left Quinta Vigia at 7:03 pm refusing to stop and talk to the press.

This afternoon Jorge Carvalho, no. 2 and longest serving member of the Regional Government, as well as the President of the PSD-M regional council, João Cunha e Silva, were also present at Quinta Vigia.

All this, at a time when the leader of the CDS-M demanded the immediate resignation of  Miguel Albuquerque, while the head of PAN-M has merely asked for him to be replaced (no point rocking the boat when you’ve just got your toe through the power door). In fact, the deputy elected by PAN-Madeira, who is a partner in the coalition that supports the PSD/CDS government, met this morning with the representative of the Republic for the Region, Ireneu Barreto, although it is not known the reason for the audience.  It is also said that she requested the audience.

Up until now, the consensus is that Miguel Albuquerque will remain head of the Regional Government until the 9th of February.
