Prime Minister António Costa considered, during an interview with the Observer, that the PSD's position, which helped to make BE's proposal viable, which prevents the transfer of more capital to Novo Banco, undermines the credibility of social democrats, and it will be a political bravado that will have no legal and political consequences.
The government official also discussed in the interview with the Observer the position of the lead BE in the State Budget. Costa says this lead was opportunistic and accused BE of defecting.
Costa also said that BE will realize the seriousness of this political error. The prime minister says he "will move on" reinforcing that he expects the blockers to learn from the mistake they made.
