The return of the fortnightly debates with the Prime Minister in the Assembly of the Republic has been scheduled for the 18th, the leaders’ conference decided today.

According to Socialist MEP Palmira Maciel, who briefed journalists on the leaders’ conference today, the preparatory debate for the European Council will take place on the same day.

The return of the fortnightly debates with the Prime Minister was scheduled for September 27, but had to be postponed due to the fact that Chega had presented a motion of censure against the government and that the new Rules of Procedure of the Assembly of the Republic, approved in July, stipulate that debates with the head of the executive in parliament cannot be held “in the fortnight following the discussion of motions of confidence or motions of censure”.

The MPs had already met in a leaders’ conference last week to schedule a new date, but there was no consensus, with the opposition accusing the PS of hindering the return of these debates.
