Andre Ventura was displeased to learn that Luis Montenegro does not yet want to create a parliamentary commission to investigate the BIC and Banif cases. The “Observer” already knows that Chega will still go with a request to create a commission of inquiry (despite the fact that there are not enough deputies for this), which, naturally, will oblige the Social Democrats to play the game and say “yes or no” . soups.”
Chega’s reaction came after the Observer stated that the leadership of the Social Democrats did not yet intend to hold a commission to investigate the Antonio Costa case. The Social Democrats understand that it is not yet the time to move on to this regimental figure, and have preferred to demand a formal explanation from the Prime Minister – a decision that will be formalized in the coming days.
A source in the Chega parliamentary group expressed deep regret over Montenegro’s decision. “We are very disappointed with the behavior of the SDP,” the party emphasizes. “It appears to be a ploy to delay the formation of the parliamentary commission and the investigation, and that there is little interest in finding out anything.”
Nevertheless, Chega retains his intention to put the constitution to a vote by a parliamentary commission of inquiry, although without the votes of the SDP (at least 46 deputies are needed), the plan is doomed to failure. In any case, the Social Democrats will be obliged to vote for Chega’s proposal, and if “no” is confirmed, Ventura will not fail to extract political dividends from it.
