Constitutional Court validates Santana Lopes’ candidacy to Figueira da Foz – Current Events

On August 23, the Court of Figueira da Foz dismissed a second complaint filed by the PSD against Santana Lopes’ candidacy for local elections, and the Social Democrats then decided to appeal to the Constitutional Court.

Today, in the TC’s decision, it can be read that the PSD’s appeal was dismissed, although “the appealed decision is partially revoked, determining the rejection of the lists presented by the group of voters designated as ‘Figueira A Primeira’ to the elections for the Parish Assemblies of Alqueidão and Lavos”.

Pedro Machado’s candidacy for the PSD considered that there were irregularities in Santana Lopes’ candidacy regarding the omission of the list of candidates in the process of collecting signatures.

Today, in a publication on Facebook, entitled “Vitória”, Santana Lopes’ candidacy says that the “Constitutional Court dismissed the request to challenge the PSD” and “only refused candidacies to the parishes of Lavos and Alqueidão”.

“Regretting the impossibility of candidacy in those two cases, candidacies for the City Council, the Municipal Assembly and 12 Parishes were confirmed, which constitutes a great victory, especially for an Independent Movement that has just been formed. Who wanted to move away, we know. We will communicate on the matter.”

Lusa contacted, however, the source of Santana Lopes’ candidacy, who later sent a statement on the matter.

In the same ruling dated today, the TC dismisses the appeal of the Chega party, which cannot stand as a candidate, following a decision by the court in Figueira da Foz, known on August 24th.

At the time, Chega appealed to the Constitutional Court.
