"I warmly congratulate Professor Aníbal Cavaco Silva on his clear victory in the Presidential elections of yesterday in Portugal", said Joseph Daul.


With this very welcome outcome for Mr. Cavaco Silva, obtaining 52,94% of the votes, the Portuguese people have shown that they want continuity with Professor Cavaco Silva's priorities, in tackling unemployment, containing external debt and reinforcing competitiveness of the Portuguese economy. 


"I am confident that Professor Cavaco Silva will meet, in this 5 year-mandate, the expectations of the Portuguese people, and will contribute to the social and economic development and prosperity of Portugal", concluded Joseph Daul MEP.
