The Government indicated today that it has included in the PSD/CDS-PP executive program more than 30 proposals from the PS, 13 from Chega, six from IL, three from Livre and another three from Bloco, two from PAN and only one from PCP.

However, some of them are worded similarly to what was already in AD’s electoral program (the pre-election coalition that included PSD, CDS-PP and PPM).

A table sent to Lusa by an executive source details the 60 measures from other parties with parliamentary representation that the Minister of the Presidency, António Leitão Amaro, indicated today were part of the program of the XXIV Constitutional Government.

In addition to the 20% reduction in corporate income tax on company cars that had been announced by the PS, according to the executive 31 other measures have been included, including one that aims to boost the use of freeways where, “although there is no alternative to public transport, there is little traffic and where the toll charge drives away even more users, particularly in low-density areas”.

Eliminating physical and architectural barriers for people with reduced mobility in public transport, ensuring more support for security force professionals who are displaced or launching the Capitalizar + Program, to support the generational transition and the valuation of business assets, are other PS proposals that the government says it has accepted.

Another PS proposal that was included in this program was the updating of the rules “for the installation of video surveillance systems in risk areas, for the use of drones and for the use of image recording systems by the security forces while respecting the fundamental rights of citizens”, which is linked to another Chega measure also accepted by the PSD/CDS-PP executive: expansion of the CCTV network in nightlife areas, in areas with the most problems and outside police stations.

One of the 13 Chega measures that the government says it has included in its program is to “conclude the process of choosing the New Lisbon Airport and start its construction as soon as possible, as well as other essential infrastructures, namely the Railway and the TGV (High Speed Train)”.

AD’s electoral program already foresaw “taking a decision on the new Lisbon airport” or “reformulating the Porta 65 program”, which the government points to as a PS measure, which involves “increasing the scope of Porta 65, changing the limits for its application”.

In the area of Defense, the executive says it has taken on board Chega’s proposals, such as “considering extending complementary social support to military personnel on voluntary, contract and special contracts”, “implementing fiscal and administrative measures to create a friendly ecosystem for companies in the Defense sector” and “improving the mechanisms for reintegrating military personnel into civilian life”.

From IL – the party with which the PSD admitted a post-election agreement, which ended up not materializing – the government mentions as proposals included in its program “greater competition for the rail service currently provided by CP and reform of the rail sector’s government”, the extension of care provided by community pharmacies or, in justice, rethinking the pre-trial phase.

On the economy, the executive also points to the liberals’ proposals to increase the scope for “collective bargaining without special conditions”, the creation of a “task force” to eliminate bureaucracy between citizens and companies and “to consider changing the regime so that residence permits are based on previously concluded work contracts or through a work-seeker’s visa”.
