The President of the Republic begins today to listen to the parties and coalitions that elected MPs in Sunday’s elections, a consultation process that begins with the PAN and ends on the 20th with the AD.

According to what the Presidency announced on Monday, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa will receive PAN today, Livre on Wednesday, the CDU (PCP/PEV) coalition on Thursday, BE on Friday and the Liberal Initiative on Saturday.

Next week, it will be time to hear from Chega on the 18th, PS on the 19th and Aliança Democrática (AD), the coalition that brought together PSD, CDS-PP and PPM, on the 20th.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa’s aim is to hear all the parties and coalitions that will be represented in the Assembly of the Republic, taking into account the provisional results announced by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and without prejudice to the constituencies that have yet to be determined.

The results of the two emigrant constituencies – Europe and Outside Europe – which each elect two MPs, have yet to be counted, which should happen on the same day as the AD hearing.

According to the provisional results, AD, which ran on the mainland and in the Azores, won 1,757,879 votes, 28.63% of the total, and elected 76 deputies.

Adding to these results the three elected representatives and 52,992 votes obtained in Madeira by the PSD and CDS-PP, who ran together in this region, without the PPM, gives a total of 1,810,871 votes, 29.49% of the total, and 79 mandates – 77 for the PSD and 2 for the CDS-PP.

The PS won 1,759,937 votes, 28.66%, and elected 77 deputies.

Article 187 of the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic states that “the Prime Minister shall be appointed by the President of the Republic, after hearing the parties represented in the Assembly of the Republic and taking into account the election results”.

On election night, PSD president Luís Montenegro said he had a “well-founded expectation” that the President of the Republic would appoint him as prime minister to form a government, given the results of the early parliamentary elections.
