Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dear all,

I am presently in Zürich preparing for a job interview that takes place tomorrow (I have been unemployed since the beginning of this month). I would like very much to provide the details on what is happening in Portugal but this is unlikely to happen before Thursday.

In a telegraphic way: a left-wing government is looking increasingly possible (different from likely). All parties involved: PS, BE and PCP, have already made public commitments from which it is not possible to go back without backlash. The division inside PS is the division of the country itself: a government supported by the communists is something many struggle with. What is more important: António Costa totally runs the show now, whatever government comes out of this process is totally in his hands.

This is by far the most interesting period in Portuguese politics since I am politically aware. Jerónimo de Sousa and the communist party have turned the political context upside down.
