“The expressive mobilization around the Somos Todos Lisboa movement, not having been enough to participate in the political decisions of our council, is still an incredible springboard for the growth at a national level of a political force that will always have the values of Equality and of Inclusion as pillars, “said Ossanda Líber, cited in a statement of his candidacy.
Ossanda Líber recalled that there are legislatives in 2023 and said that “everything is open”, after the local councils on Sunday in Lisbon had obtained 864 votes (0.36% of the total) in the election for the chamber and 1,064 votes (0.44 %) in votes for the municipal assembly.
Social democrat Carlos Moedas, who headed a right-wing coalition that brought together PSD, CDS-PP, Aliança, MPT and PPM, won the advantage and will be the new president of Lisbon’s City Council.
Coins defeated the socialist Fernando Medina, who ran for office again, but non-executive both managed the same number of terms (seven each).
The CDU (PCP / PEV) elected two councilors and the Left Block one.
Ossanda Líber considered, in the statement released today, that “the path of change that opens in Lisbon is decisive for the balance of policies in Portugal, which consequently guarantees the exercise of democracy in a plural, inclusive, humble and responsible manner”.
“I have always trusted in the ability of the Portuguese to make the right decisions at key moments,” said the Somos Todos Lisboa candidate in relation to the result of advantages in the country’s largest municipality.
Ossanda Líber left an appeal to Coins, “on behalf of all Lisboners”: “I hope it works for us. For all of us indiscriminately.”
