The outgoing government, led by António Costa, today released a “transition portfolio” for the next executive with the “most relevant projects that are under development” in various areas, such as housing, the airport or public services.

The 50-page document was released after the start of the meeting of the last Council of Ministers of this government, which is chaired by the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

“This Public Transition Folder contains some of the most relevant projects under development in the various areas of government,” says the document, which is divided into 24 themes.

The new airport, housing, railroads, schools, young people, higher education, energy, firefighting, water, European funds, public administration, public services and teachers are some of the areas covered in the document.

The other areas are health equipment, social equipment, science, urban mobility, roads, heritage recovery, media, digitalization, justice equipment, security forces equipment and military equipment.

The next government, which takes office on April 2, will be led by Luís Montenegro, who was appointed prime minister after the legislative elections on April 10.

The Council of Ministers, which is taking place at the Caixa Geral de Depósitos premises in Lisbon, began at around 10:40.

The meeting, chaired by the President of the Republic, started a little late, after the Prime Minister and Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa had visited the facilities that have been adapted to house several ministries.

The Democratic Alliance (the pre-election coalition that brought together the PSD, CDS-PP and PPM) won the elections on April 10 and the PSD leader was appointed Prime Minister by the President of the Republic. Luís Montenegro will present his government on Thursday and is due to take office on April 2nd.
