If the austerity program imposed following the crisis by the "Troika" – European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund – raised the Portuguese thermometer of euroscepticism, the last four years of recovery have relaunched the meters.

European elections 2019: news, polls and lists of candidates

According to the April Eurobarometer, 82% of Portuguese believe that belonging to the Union is "Profitable" at home, and only 7% would vote in favor of an exit in the event of a referendum. "Here, the sovereignist, the anti-Brussels nationalism do not work. For a large majority of Portuguese, Europe remains associated with progress and development »insists António Costa Pinto of the Institute of Social Sciences in Lisbon.

Portugal wants to end with austerity

However, the May 26 poll struggles to mobilize, polls predicting a record abstention of 63%. And the campaign remains dominated by a national issue: how will be judged the policy led by Prime Minister António Costa since 2015? " After 40 years of democracy, Portugal is headed, for the first time, by a socialist government supported by the communists and the radical left. The question is whether this experience will withstand the legislative elections scheduled for October 6. The Europeans will be a first test »says António Costa Pinto.
