Portugal’s Socialists Force Center-Right Government to Resign

Socialist leader Antonio Costa is expected to become the new prime minister in a few weeks after his party formed an unprecedented coalition.
The Socialist Party of Portugal formed an unprecedented coalition with the Communist Party and the Left Bloc to achieve a majority in the 230-seat National Assembly, forcing the new center-right government to resign by rejecting its policy proposals.
Socialist leader Antonio Costa is now expected to become the country’s prime minister in the following weeks backed by the communist PCP party and the Left Bloc, known as the BE, the Associated Press reported.
The Portuguese ruling PAF party, led by Prime Minister Pedro Passos, lost its majority in parliament after the Oct. 4 elections.
After Portugal’s president, Anibal Cavaco Silva, chose Passos to form a new government, even though he lacked backing, the leftists came together to form a majority that has now forced the new administration Passos formed only two weeks ago to resign.
