Parties announce their lead candidates to EU elections



On June 9, the Portuguese will go to the polls again to elect 21 members of the European Parliament.


The European elections are usually seen as a "test" for the Government. And after the AD's narrow victory on March 10, these European elections will be particularly important to evaluate whether the current government has won over the Portuguese electorate or new parliamentary elections are needed to clarify the result.


This week, the parties represented in Parliament revealed their lead candidates for the European elections. Find out here who they are:
