Isilda Gomes is PS candidate for the European Parliament

The mayor of Portimão is in an eligible position, so if that happens, she will have to leave the municipality

Isilda Gomes, current president of Portimão City Council, is on the PS list for the European Elections on June 9th. Apparently, the Algarve mayor will occupy 7th place, that is, a position in which she must be elected, which will force her to leave the Chamber of Portimo, halfway through her third and final term.

The list of candidates is being approved this evening at the meeting of the PS Political Committee, which is taking place in Lisbon.

According to Agência Lusa, which cites a party source, the list of socialists at the Europeans will be headed by the former Minister of Health and current socialist deputy Marta Temido.

According to the complete list, put forward by Observador, Francisco Assis, currently a PS deputy and former president of the Economic and Social Council, will be number two.

PS leader Pedro Nuno Santos bet on the renewal of MEPs and also chose former minister and current deputy Ana Catarina Mendes to join this list, in 3rd place.

In 11th place, Pedro do Carmo from Alentejo.

In addition to Isilda Gomes, who is also leader of the Socialist Mayors, the list includes another mayor, Carla Tavares, mayor of Amadora.

The list also includes another Algarvian, but already as substitutes, without any possibility of being elected. This is Abel Matinhos, president of JS Algarve between 2017 and 2024 and municipal deputy in Loulé since 2017.
