“Right now, we have growth and this will be discussed, within the framework of the program that I will present”, he said.

“It is an issue that I am willing to consider and discuss, now we need to understand that any fee is a tax and my policy has been the opposite, it has been to reduce taxes, remove fees and develop money for society. ”, he reinforced.

This year's regional legislative elections have not yet been scheduled by the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, but must take place in September or October.
