Brexit is a chaos that does not help anyone,” says Portugal’s Finance Minister, adding that a second referendum is essential and that the UK must stay part of the European Union, for everyone’s benefit.

Mário Centeno, who also heads the Eurogroup of member states’ finance ministers, hopes the UK stays, an outcome, “which will benefit the EU and the UK.”

Centeno, interviewed on TSF, added that the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union is the main headache for Portugal’s foreign policy.

“In order to make a decision, you have to have all the information and I do not think that all the information was given,” said the politician, adding that even if  a second referendum is the same, at least people will have voted when in possession of the facts.
