PS outvoted in PSD bid to ensure MPs declare Masonic and Opus Dei affiliations

Proof this week that PS Socialists will cite the Portuguese Constitution when it suits their agenda. In this case, it was in the face of a PSD bid to force MPs to declare Masonic, Opus Dei and other kinds of ‘club memberships’. PS thinking is that this intrudes on rights of privacy and is therefore unconstitutional. The ‘draft law’ was approved however – with votes in favour from all other parties. It will now move forwards for a vote in parliament before going to President of the Republic for approval, or referral to the Constitutional Court).
