We need measures to counter increases in fuel price

Statement by Duarte Alves, Deputado, Assembly of the Republic

We need measures to counter increases in fuel price

The successive increases in fuel prices are a matter of great concern for most of the Portuguese and, due to the impacts they have on the entire economy, call into question the need for recovery considering the situation that the country is still facing.

The PCP considers it is essential to take urgent measures to counter these price increases, combining the fight against price speculation with fiscal measures.

«We could ask: how do the answers that the workers and the people demand contribute to the alleged crisis?»

Greetings also and our appreciation to all our friends of the Ecologist Party «The Greens», of the Democratic Intervention, to the thousands of independents and activists of the CDU who were side by side with us in the recent electoral combat for Local Government which we fought together, creating a great campaign of contact with the populations.

A global response to national problems and the State Budget proposal for 2022

Statement by João Oliveira, Member of the Political Commission of the Central Committee

A global response to national problems and the State Budget proposal for 2022

The situation and dimension of the national problems require solutions to face them.

Other options and an alternative path are needed that contemplate the issues that mark the lives of the workers, the people and the country.

The debate on the State Budget must be part of this global response, which is as necessary as it is pressing. The Budget has its own value, but it is – it must be – an expression and translation of these options.

I - Results of the local elections

About the results of the elections for local authorities 2021

Statement by Jerónimo de Sousa, General Secretary of the PCP, Lisboa

About the results of the elections for local authorities 2021

The CDU notes the results achieved in a particularly demanding context. A result that had to face, in its construction, a set of adverse factors, but which the mobilization and commitment of thousands of activists and candidates built up, affirming our work, honesty and competence as recognized reasons for support and trust.

A result which, despite its national expression, falls short of the goals that were defined.

The CDU, regardless of the losses registered, confirms itself as a great force in local government.
