Carla Alves was in the Government for just over 24 hours, after taking office on Wednesday at the Palácio de Belém, replacing Rui Martinho, who left the executive for health reasons.
Leaving the position of regional director of Agriculture and Fisheries of the North, Carla Alves did "not have the political and personal conditions to start functions in the position", minutes after the President of the Republic considered that the newly sworn Secretary of State had " a political limitation", due to the legal case involving her husband, and should judge the conditions to remain in office.
At issue was news from Correio da Manhã that the now former Secretary of State has bank accounts seized, as part of an investigation involving her husband and former mayor of Vinhais, Américo Pereira.
The resignation of Carla Alves came a day after the inauguration of two ministers and six secretaries of State, in a reshuffle caused by the case of the compensation of 500 thousand euros paid to the former Secretary of State for the Treasury Alexandra Reis, to leave the administration of TAP.
The reshuffle led to the departure of the Minister of Infrastructure, Pedro Nuno Santos, who supervised TAP, and of the Secretaries of State for Infrastructure and the Treasury. At the same time, the Secretary of State for Agriculture left.
