Chega's resignation leader, André Ventura, will ask in September to suspend the parliamentary term until February to dedicate himself to electoral campaigns in the Azores and presidential regions, being replaced by Pacheco de Amorim.
According to André Ventura himself to the Lusa agency, Diogo Pacheco de Amorim will occupy the parliamentary functions, as he was the second in the electoral list of the Lisbon circle in the 2019 legislative elections.
“I will dedicate myself, full time, to the campaigns of the Azores and Presidential. I will be part of the month of October in the different islands of the Azores, where we hope to elect several regional deputies. Then, I will resume my tour of the country for the presidential walk. I will resume my mandate after the presidential elections, ”said the resigning president of the right-wing populist party.
Ventura added that he will only ask for the suspension of the deputy's term of office in September, after handing over the constitutional review process for Chega, which is intended to allow the recovery of the life sentence.
