The same government which was rejected in the recent elections, will be presented by the center-Right Coelho despite that he has not the majority in the new parliament. The Left and the Socialists are expected to vote against.
The same government which was rejected by the majority of the Portuguese people in the 4th October elections, was presented by the center-Right Pedro Passos Coelho, to the President of Portugal Aníbal Cavaco Silva, despite that he has not the necessary majority to be supported in the new Portuguese parliament.
Maria Luís Albuquerque keeps her position as Minister of State and Finance, while Paulo Portas, the leader of CDS-PP and government partner until now, is being proposed as vice-president of the government.
It should be noted that in ten days, the proposed governmental scheme should receive motion of confidence from the parliament, in which Coelho's party lacks the majority.
At the same time, intense pressure is exercised on the Socialist party which has stated that will vote against, together with the two Leftist parties (Left Bloc and Communist Party).
Coelho calls Socialists in a dialogue by pointing the danger of economic collapse, at the same time when Cavaco Silva has stated that a Leftist government would be harmful for the relations between Portugal and the European Union.
Note that, the center-Right hopes that nine MPs could abandon the Socialist wing, in order to take the majority in the parliament. However, according to various analysts, this is extremely unlikely to be reached.
It is impressive that the same arguments were used by the systemic establishment in Greece, when the Leftist party SYRIZA was threatening the dominance of the two-party system PASOK and New Democracy who were completely connected to the Brussels-Berlin neoliberal agenda.
The mainstream media and various MPs of the establishment were circulating catastrophic scenarios, among them, the breakup of the relations with NATO and European Union and the isolation of Greece.
Finally, the Brussels-Berlin axis managed to defeat Tsipras and get rid of the "dangerous" radicals of his party, as planned. Tsipras was forced to sign a third catastrophic memorandum, according to the neoliberal experiment.
