The head of the PS list to the European elections, Pedro Marques, says that "the PS asked" and the Portuguese "gave a huge victory to the PS."
He has just delivered a triumphal speech at the Altis Hotel, in Lisbon, next to António Costa. In Marquis's perspective it was "a huge victory for the PS", with more votes and mandates. "And we were more than 10 points away from our main opponent," he said.
"The victory of the PS in these elections is a true beacon of hope," said Marques, noting that the advantage over the PSD "gains a special significance because we are ruling in our country."
