PSD announces it will be voting against government’s State Budget

No surprises today as PSD leader Luís Montenegro announces his party has decided to vote against the government’s proposed State Budget for 2024. Antipathy to the budget is running through opposition parties who feel PS Socialists are “hoodwinking the country” by reducing income tax contributions on the lower tax scales but bumping up indirect taxes to more than compensate the State for any relief.
