Seven candidates are in the running in next Sunday’s poll, with conservative incumbent Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa widely tipped to win.

Record numbers of people took part in early voting yesterday for next weekend’s Portuguese presidential election, days after the start of a second coronavirus lockdown. Almost 250,000 people have registered to vote in advance, nearly five times the number during the last election, officials said. AFP
