Government schedules dates for ‘emergency debate’ and ‘censure motion’

The emergency parliamentary debate called by opposition party PSD as a matter of urgency following the fallout from the TAP golden handshake row has been scheduled for tomorrow, while Iniciativa Liberal’s request for a motion of censure of the government – for all the perceived failings in this case – is due to be considered on Thursday. This will be the second censure motion to have been received by this government. It is certain to fail due to PS Socialists absolute majority.
