Macário fights back

Macário Correia, the still President of Faro Câmara, seems to be running out of options to stay in office. The Constitutional Court has rejected his latest request for clarification on a judgement they made in January that he is obliged to forfeit his mandate and stand down.

Macário refused to accept it and appealed once again before the court. For the judiciary, the words used in the judgment were sufficiently clear and therefore should not require more clarification.

The politician was condemned last summer by the Supreme Administrative Court to lose office but made an appeal to the Constitutional Court which was unsuccessful.

While he was president of Tavira Câmara, Macário Correia was accused of violating several regional urbanisation documents.
