Presseurop: Portugal little aware of election date

Portugal has begun its campaigning for the European Parliamentary elections. Only eight percent of the Portuguese know the ballot for them will be held on June 7, and turnout is being predicted to reach only 24 percent.

Launch of the campaigns has come with squabbling over how much the competing parties aim to spend. As the ruling Socialists's top candidate is Vital Moreira, an academic and specialist in constitutional law, began his rounds, the party was tipped to take 39 percent of the vote.
