Cristas uses meeting with president to call for ministers’ resignations

Assunção Cristas, who took over from Paulo Portas as the leader of the CDS – People’s Party, has used a cozy chat with the president to launch a fierce attack on the government as it struggles with the fallout from the Pedrógão Grande fires and the theft of significant amounts of military arms and ammunition from the Tancos depot near Santarém.

In today’s meeting with the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Cristas demanded that the Prime Minister, António Costa returns to Lisbon (he is said to be on vacation) in order to sack his ministers of defence and of internal affairs.
