“ANDthe election for the district bodies of Lisbon is over. A List A obtained from a total of 1,750 votes (89%) in response to List X with 221 votes (11%)”, can be read in Ângelo Pereira’s publication.
“It will be two challenging years for which this team is fully motivated to defend the interests of the citizens of the District of Lisbon and raise a social democracy in the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon”, he wrote.
The Lisbon district of the PSD, the second largest in number of activists, went to votes on Saturday with two candidates, the current president and candidate Ângelo Pereira and the former vice-president of the council of Amadora Jorge Humberto.
Ângelo Pereira was elected for the first time president of the Lisbon district of the PSD in November 2019 with 82% of the votes, defeating the councilor in replacement of Lisbon City Council Sofia Vala Rocha, with 18%.
In the last autarchic term, Ângelo Pereira, who had been a candidate by the PSD to the Chamber of Oeiras against Isaltino Morais, exercised the functions of councilor in the municipal executive. At the national level, in the last direct changes to the PSD leadership in 2020, Ângelo Pereira supported Miguel Pinto Luz, who came in third, and, in the second round, former parliamentary leader Luís Montenegro, who would be defeated by the current president, Rui Rio.
Throughout its history, a district in Lisbon had as presidents, for example, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who was the first (1975-1977), António Pinto Leite, José Pacheco Pereira and Duarte Lima. Pedro Pinto, deputy and former JSD leader, was Ângelo Pereira’s predecessor.
