BE leader urges celerity in inquiry into whether or not PM broke law

With commentators suggesting what happened yesterday was a form of ‘coup’, in which the justice system brought down a government, left wing leader Mariana Mortágua has said during her party’s audience with the President today that it is vital the inquiry into suspicions that the prime minister may have acted as a facilitator in business be rapidly clarified. “It is this one hopes of a democracy”, she stressed. All parties are meeting with President Marcelo today, ahead of tomorrow’s Council of State, after which Portugal’s head of State will address the nation with his masterplan of how to navigate the current political maelstrom.
