Madeira president calls for veto of Euthanasia draft…

Minutes after it was reported that parliament in Lisbon had approved what may well be the final draft of the bill to decriminalise medically-assisted suicide, president of Madeira’s parliament, José Manuel Rodrigues, was speaking out, complaining his region had not been consulted and asking for the whole thing to be vetoed (for a third time…) Marcelo has said – admittedly before this objection raised by Madeira – that he means to come to a decision by Christmas. José Manuel Rodrigues’ objection was sent to President Marcelo in the form of a letter, writes Lusa.
