Rebelo de Sousa is running against eight candidates, with a recent poll placing him as clear favourite.

President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa last night confirmed that he was running for office again in next month’s election. Known for his fondness for selfies and sometimes light-hearted media appearances, he had been hoping to make the announcement at a bookshop, but with most businesses shut due to coronavirus rules, he opted for a video from a well-known bakery near his office. Rebelo de Sousa is running against eight candidates, with a recent poll placing him as clear favourite, with 62 percent of the vote.
