Only once more than half of the electorate has chosen the head of state since 2000. It is feared that the pandemic will lead to an abstention record.
Candidate known as "Tino de Rans" says that the head of state "rocked" the government out of interest and promises to have "loose people" in the State Council.
The presidential candidate supported by the PCP argues that the dispersion of votes may be a reason for a second round of the presidential elections to be held on January 24.
Current head of state participated by videoconference in the debate with Ana Gomes, André Ventura, João Ferreira, Marisa Matias, Tiago Mayan Gonçalves and Vitorino Silva. "Both wanted a President more aligned to the right or to the left", he defended, in the face of criticisms of his mandate, stressing that the crises of the last years advised "a President who was not a faction".
