Parliamentary holidays are just around the corner, but there is still much to prepare for the return to political combat in September. The Covid-19 pandemic is forcing parties to reinvent the usual renters and find new solutions that guarantee the safety and protection of all participants. According to what the Jornal Económico (JE) found, the bet on virtual sessions or a hybrid model (face-to-face and virtual) should mark the return to political combat, but the final plan will depend on the evolution of the pandemic.
In the PS, “the plan for returning to political activity is not yet defined”, but an official party source reminds JE that “the federative congresses are scheduled for September 12 and 13” and are, for now, the only event scheduled for the official start of socialist activity after the holidays. For the holding of these congresses, “the conditions of social distance, individual protection with a mask, cleaning of the electoral spaces and the non-gathering of more than 10 people” will be respected.
