Portugal faces political crisis as leftists vow to topple new government

Jon Henley
 
Portugal appeared headed for months of political uncertainty – even crisis – on Monday after the main opposition Socialists and their allies pledged to bring down the country’s new minority government as early as next week.
Pedro Passos Coelho, controversially nominated as prime minister last week by president Aníbal Cavaco Silva following inconclusive elections on 4 October, looks set to fall at the first hurdle when he seeks parliamentary backing for the new centre-right government’s programme, which he is obliged to do within 10 days of taking office.
His rightwing Forward Portugal Alliance (PAF), which over the past four years has pushed through a raft of tough pay, pension and public spending cuts as well as swingeing tax hikes as part of Portugal’s €78bn bailout agreement, won the most votes and has the largest bloc of seats in parliament, but lost its overall majority.

Published on Oct 24, 2015
Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Keiser Report theory of quantum financial fraud: an odd world, formed by a fabric of toxic derivatives, where wealth does not take form until it has been stolen from a pension fund via particles of sub-debt existing in hundreds of tranches of CDOs simultaneously. In the second half, Max and Stacy interview Joel Benjamin of Debt Resistance UK about the role of housing speculation, and the consequent exploding mortgage debts, in destabilizing the economy.
