Luis Montenegro Named Portugal’s Prime Minister

Luis Montenegro Named Portugal’s Prime Minister
  • After eight years of Socialist rule in Portugal, Luis Montenegro, leader of the centre-right Democratic Alliance (AD), has been appointed as the new prime minister. However, his minority government faces challenges due to his refusal to ally with the far-right Chega party.
  • Montenegro’s appointment marks the return of a centre-right leader to the prime minister’s office after more than eight years.
  • Despite his party’s victory in the recent election, the AD falls short of a majority in the parliament, with only 80 out of 230 seats.
  • Montenegro’s rejection of a coalition with the far-right Chega party leaves his government in a fragile position, necessitating negotiations with other parties for legislative support.
