(4 Oct 2019) Portugal’s Socialist Prime Minister Antonio Costa joined his party parade in Lisbon on Friday before the country heads to the polls for a general election this weekend.
Costa greeted the crowd as hundreds of socialist supporters marched across downtown carrying roses, a symbol for the party, and flags.
He appealed for voters to come out on Sunday when the polls open, saying that voting for his party would be “choosing what we want for the future four years.”
“We can do more and better, to have the strength to listen but also to say no, when necessary to say no, to be able to negotiate in Europe,” he added.
Costa’s centre-left Socialist Party is leading the poll at least seven percentage points over the centre-right Social Democratic party.
However, this might not be enough for the incumbent prime minister to secure a majority in parliament.
