The PS staff in the municipal assembly (AM) of Vila Real de Santo António scheduled an extraordinary session of the autarchic body for November 23, with the sole objective of discussing the financial situation of the municipality.
In the face of the latest report of the FAM (Municipal Support Fund) for 2017 and the "seriousness of the situation therein", the Socialists handed in an application in September for a special meeting, accusing the AM president of having "Ignored their legal obligations" for not having scheduled the session.
Thus, the socialist party called for a right under the law – the possibility of a third of the members of the municipal assembly request the appointment of an extraordinary assembly – to schedule the session for November 23 at 9 pm at the municipal library Vicente Campinas .
"This is an unprecedented fact in more than 40 years of autarchic power and revealing the concept of democracy that is currently lived in VRSA," stresses the PS / VRSA.
Socialists criticize, in a statement, "the PSD's attempts to silence the debate, so as not to let the citizens know the reality of the financial situation and to perceive the reasons that were the origin of the debacle that led the county."
