President Iniciativa Liberal (IL) visited the Monte Abraão fair, in Sintra, this Saturday, looking for a backpack to carry the “responsibility of changing Portugal”, but it doesn’t give either the size or the desired color.
“Portugal’s responsibility is very heavy”, commented João Cotrim Figueire, saying that the backpack he currently uses is “by a thread”, like the country, and needs to be replaced, as well as the government.
However, by January 30, the liberal hopes to find a suitable backpack that will also hold the 600 pages of his electoral program and the many measures proposed to change the country.
In addition to the backpacks, Cotrim Figueire drew attention to the stalls where bags and pasta are sold, but he was also unable to find and buy anything he liked.
“There were no bags, no masses, but I am not at all worried about that”, he underlined between the smiles and in a clear illusion of the possibility of determining the portfolio in case of integrating a right-wing government.
To, soon after, say that after the legislative laws, only later, see the policies “size and color of the law” to buy.
And, while he was walking around the fairgrounds and taking selfies, the president of IL assured that he will not make a PS, PCP, BE or Chega government viable.
Speaking that his position is, in this aspect, “very clear”, the liberal had the opportunity to buy an “anti-Enough watch”, this according to the marketer, but he chose not to do so because he already had many.
“Don’t pull for me”, asked the liberal who, on the way, came across a PSD entourage where, in addition to hugs, there were good luck wishes from both parties.
The IL entourage, without competing with the other vendors, was “selling their product” and proclaiming that with them “everything is at 15% of the IRS”.
Halfway through the course, João Cotrim Figiredo was approached by a lady who, more than the IRS, was close to the state of health in Portugal for eight years, namely with the fact that she did not have a family doctor.
“Can you do something? It’s just that to have an appointment I have to go to the door of the health center at 1 am”, he stressed.
The liberal president assured that health is one of his banners, remaining committed to reforming the National Health System (SNS) and ending similar situations.
Despite the “the 30th of Portugal is liberal” that signaled the presence of the meal, Cotrim Figueiredo managed to say “this is a good one, I know, I like to hear him talk” and, in the approach, he verified if such a declaration was enough to count on your vote.
Taking advantage of the liberal leader’s attention, the marketer took the opportunity to complain about the price to be paid for occupying the space, something shared by others.
“We were the first to go home, so what is venomous is that you remember us in the future and not just in the campaigns”, stressed an olive oil trader.
Cotriueredo stressed that he usually goes there sometimes, not only during a political campaign, because he likes that “organizational climate” of people doing their best for a living.
