Debates.  “The PCP and Livre have divergent positions on the European Union”

Paulo Raimundo and Rui Tavares will be face to face, this Tuesday, to debate. There was talk of agreements on the left, of culture and international politics.

Regarding a possible convergence to the left, Paulo Raimundo informs that the path “has to be a path of rupture” and that the PCP “will never fail in any convergence that responds to the country’s concrete problems”, he promises.

Rui Tavares, on a possible Gerigonça 2.0, begins by mentioning what Pedro Nuno had defended, in which a PS vote serves to implement Livre’s ideas. “The only thing left was for the parties to show this self-sufficiency. Voting for the PS sometimes doesn’t even work to implement the PS’s ideas,” he says.

Changing the notebook, the topic is now Ukraine. “The PCP and Livre have divergent positions on the European Union”, begins by saying the leader of Livre, confessing, however, that “they have coherent positions and, unfortunately, this is not general in Portuguese politics.

“Livre believes that the European project is essential for globalization. The only option that Europeans have, given their size, is to unite to fight against imperialism”, he states.

Paulo Raimundo contextualizes the war, stating that the war began in 2014, and that the EU and the USA and NATO are also “intervenors”. It is necessary to “put an end to the massacre in Palestine”, he adds.

Speaking now about the security forces, Raimundo defends a merger between the GNR and the PSP and, regarding Chega’s proposal for them to have party affiliation, he says that this is not now a central issue, but that the police should, yes, , have the right to strike.

Rui Tavares, now speaking, states that “with minimum services, the right to strike may be recognized”, but he is against agents joining parties.

At the end, and on Culture, the CDU leader defends proposals for “valuing professionals” and again asks for 1% of the OE for Culture, a measure that Livre follows, also defending an “affordable rental program” for cultural projects that are losing their headquarters.
