The President of the Republic considered today in Nelas, in the district of Viseu, that the Government in creating a Secretary of State of Valorization of the Interior is giving more political weight to a concern of the Portuguese.
"I do not like commenting on renovations in the Government, but I would like to emphasize that there was a mission unit for the interior that goes to the Secretary of State. My reading is that it is a political bet on this cause, "said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
For the head of state, the reading is obvious: "what deserved a unity of mission deserves a Secretariat of State to give, therefore, greater political weight to this concern of the Portuguese."
The head of state was speaking to journalists late this morning at the Nelas School Center in Viseu district, where he presided over the ceremony to distribute the book "Bombeirito na floresta".
Surrounded by dozens of preschool and first-cycle children, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa was very interactive with the youngest in teaching how to care for the forest and what should not be done.
The Secretary of State for the Appreciation of the Interior, created in the government remodeling of the last weekend, will be occupied by João Paulo Catarino, who acted as coordinator of the Mission Unit for the Valorization of the Interior.
