Portuguese presidential election: Nearly 1 million euros must be spent on masks


The Portuguese presidential election will compete with it at this time: nearly one million euros must be spent to provide masks, gloves, sun visors and alcohol gel to polling staff and the public. 


Before the general election on January 24, the government newspaper Diário da República announced a fee of 439,000 euros and an IVA.

The presidential election will be held in Portugal on January 24, 2021. According to the Constitution, the current President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is allowed to serve a second term.


Marcelo Rebelo de Souza was elected in January 2016, 52% of the first round of voting. He was sworn in on March 9, 2016 and has been living with the socialist prime minister Antonio Costa ever since.

In Portugal, the president is the head of state and mainly has ceremonial powers. However, the president does have a certain degree of political influence. If a crisis occurs, the Portuguese parliament can be dissolved. The President also owns an official residence in the Belém Palace in Lisbon.
