Conference of Leaders meets on Tuesday to set date for emergency debate

The Conference of Leaders will be meeting on Tuesday at 11.30 to discuss and set the date for the emergency debate requested by PSD and CHEGA, in the wake of the golden handshake ructions, as well as Liberal Initiative’s motion of censure. It is clear now that political leaders are trying to draw a line over a week of  ‘crisis’. Reports have forecast that the prime minister will announce “a wide reform” of his government at some point next week.
