Pinto da Costa again uses space in Dragões, FC Porto's publication, to criticize those who for almost 50 years have not complied with the Constitution
Taking as its starting point the speech he gave at the closing of the recent Golden Dragons Gala, Pinto da Costa talks again about regionalization. To do this it uses the usual space in Dragões, the FC Porto publication that has been available online since Wednesday.
"Since 1976, the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic clearly states that 'on the continent, local authorities are parishes, municipalities and administrative regions.' Parishes and municipalities have been around for a long time, but the regions have not left the paper for some time. almost 50. With each election and each swearing in, we see politicians from various parties swearing to enforce and enforce the constitution, but all have failed in this compromise. Despite disregarding the fundamental law of the country, nothing happens to them. luck doesn't have the poor who sometimes do much less serious things when they are desperate, "one can read.
The Portista president speaks of lack of courage and puts FC Porto back at the forefront of the fight for regionalization: "In Portugal, there is a lack of will and courage to carry on the reform that could help to diminish the effects of the chronic centralism that suffocates the country. "I believe FC Porto will never cease to be an important force in this fight for a fairer country," he said.
