Portimão: Luís Carito's candidacy suspends campaign

Candidate "is dismayed by the passing of a man of integrity and values"

The “Portimão Mais Feliz” candidacy ((CDS-Partido Popular, NÓS Cidadãos! and Aliança), headed by former socialist Luís Carito, has also announced the “cancellation of all campaign actions scheduled for the day of today', due to the death of Jorge Sampaio, former President of the Republic.

Luís Carito, who "followed some of the main political moments of Jorge Sampaio, in the context of party activity, but also as a supporter of the latter in the presidential elections", says he is "dismayed by the passing of a man of integrity and values, who did so much for consolidation of Democracy in Portugal».

It also does not forget «the legal aspect of Jorge Sampaio in his professional career in law, where he was one of the most outspoken defenders of Justice, having publicly fought against the injustices of a judicial system that often fails, which many allow previous popular judgments, which often allows the dissemination of decontextualized information».

The “Portimão Mais Feliz” bid team also sends “heartfelt condolences to our fellow Algarvean Maria José Rita and in her person to the entire direct family” of Jorge Sampaio.
