"To say that Chega has made PS projects viable is a great lack of shame in the face that Rui Rio is having in this final stretch. He will not convince the Portuguese," said André Ventura, when questioned on arrival at a dinner rally in Beja.

He said that the PSD had voted with the PS in the current legislature 60 percent of the time, as he had done this afternoon.

"The actions stay with those who do them," he added.
