In these two years of the new phase of national political life, launched with the struggle of the workers and the decisive action of the PCP, it was possible, although to a limited extent, to carry out measures to restore the rights, wages and income of workers and people, and answer some of the problems most felt by the Portuguese people.

This action was, once again, very obvious in the debate on the State Budget for 2018 that has just been adopted - the third State Budget of this new phase of national political life.
