The PS government’s “right accounts” “mess up the lives” of the Portuguese


Share post:

PCP general secretary Paulo Raimundo today considered that the government’s “right accounts” policy “makes life worse” for the Portuguese and “aggravates the country’s problems”, and demanded a “general and significant increase” in wages.

In his debut speech at the Festa do Avante!, Paulo Raimundo said that “the PS’s policy, supported in essence by the PSD, CDS, Chega and Iniciativa Liberal, all of whom are submissive to the euro, to the impositions of the European Union and to the cleaver of the right accounts, does not serve and makes the country’s problems worse”.

“Their right accounts make our lives and the direction of the country wrong, and how wrong that is,” he said.

The communist leader pointed out that “the effects of a policy that is essentially at the service of the interests and objectives of the economic groups are evident, an option that the actions of the PS government, its absolute majority and the intervention of PSD, CDS, Chega and IL converge on”.

“The contradiction between the reality of the hard lives of the workers and the people and the profits of the economic groups is shocking,” said Raimundo.

The communist general secretary also demanded a “general and significant increase” in wages.

Paulo Raimundo, who succeeded Jerónimo de Sousa as secretary-general of the PCP in November, gave his first speech at the Festa do Avante!, the highlight of the communist ‘rentrée’, which ends today at Quinta da Atalaia, in Seixal (Setúbal district).
