Ventura says Costa failed to address crisis in institutions and health

The president of Chega said today that the prime minister’s Christmas message failed to address issues such as the crisis in institutions, justice and health, accusing António Costa of not taking responsibility.

“It’s a prime minister who manages in his last message to miss the two main topics that it was important to address today and to look to the future: the crisis of institutions and trust in justice, which led to the end of his government, and the deeply degraded system in which our health finds itself today,” André Ventura said.

The Chega leader was reacting to the Prime Minister’s Christmas message, in which António Costa said that he was leaving a better country after eight years of Socialist government leadership, considering that Portugal is prepared to face the challenges of a more qualified population and less debt.

In his reaction in Lisbon, André Ventura accused the resigning prime minister of a “profound inability to exercise self-responsibility, a critical judgment of self-accountability”.

In the Chega leader’s opinion, “António Costa failed across the board by not being able to give the Portuguese the peace of mind that the country needed on Christmas Eve”, accusing the PS and the Prime Minister of living “in a parallel reality that is completely different from the majority of the Portuguese”.

“Let’s hope that in March the Portuguese will be able to give the answer to those who don’t want to live or resolve their dramas and the dramas of Portugal,” he said.
