A group of 22 socialists on 20 January announced their support for the presidential re-election of Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, including mayors, three former ministers, Correia de Campos, Vieira da Silva and Pedro Marques, and the Azorean regional leader Vasco Cordeiro.

In the text, with the title "Vote to mobilise Portugal", to which Lusa had access, Marcelo's first term is praised, for "respect and appreciation of the constitutional framework", for "political stability and political and social dialogue", for the “defense of national interests”.

“This is the main reason that leads us to trust that the candidate Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa's continued affirmations of assuming the same attitude in a possible second term give him a particular capacity to deserve the popular vote”, states in the text signed by 22 personalities PS.
