Anibal Cavaco Silva, Portugal’s constitutional president, has refused to appoint a Left-wing coalition government even though it secured an absolute majority in the Portuguese parliament and won a mandate to smash the austerity regime bequeathed by the EU-IMF Troika.
He deemed it too risky to let the Left Bloc or the Communists come close to power, insisting that conservatives should soldier on as a minority in order to satisfy Brussels and appease foreign financial markets. Democracy must take second place to the higher imperative of euro rules and membership.
“In 40 years of democracy, no government in Portugal has ever depended on the support of anti-European forces, that is to say forces that campaigned to abrogate the Lisbon Treaty, the Fiscal Compact, the Growth and Stability Pact, as well as to dismantle monetary union and take Portugal out of the euro, in addition to wanting the dissolution of NATO,” said Mr Cavaco Silva.
Note: The west as exporters of democracy by force will not allow a democratic majority in Portugal to reject its top down NATO, EU bankster/globalist friendly directives.
How amusing. It is only a democracy if the plebs vote as planned!
This has implications for the propaganda of western humanitarian interventions for Ebola, terrorism, climate change and the global legal frauds of TPP/TTIP.

Seems like business as usual to Tubularsock.
