Government moving ahead with Montijo regardless?

Following the setback delivered by airport regulator ANAC last week (click here), PS Socialists are forging ahead with attempts to ‘change legislation’, taking the power of veto away from local councils, so that the Montijo airport project (however disliked locally) can move ahead. The Council of Ministers approved a draft law in this regard yesterday, in the knowledge that PSD centre-right leader Rui Rio has said his party will back it. The proposal will now be submitted to parliament.
