Holland’s election result “good news for Portugal”, says Marcelo

President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has welcomed last night’s election result in Holland – in which prime-minister Mark Rutte was ‘re-elected’ for a third mandate, obliterating the challenge posed by the man described as Netherlands’ answer to Donald Trump (hairstyle included) – calling the outcome ““good news for all those who defend a moderate, united, cohesive, strong Europe”.

Marcelo was talking to the Society of Portuguese Authors during a prize-giving ceremony.
