DIÁRIO DE NOT͍CIAS
Founded in Lisbon in 1864, Diário de Notícias is one of Portugal's leading dailies. Now representing the center of the political spectrum, it was during the dictatorship one of the publications that best reflected the government's position. In the months that followed the Carnation Revolution of 1974, the newspaper briefly adopted a Communist stance, under the leadership of future Literature Nobel Prize winner, José Saramago.

Portugal Political Crisis: Minority Governments Don’t Rule

LISBON â€" Portugal is relearning one of the basic tenets of democracy: Majority rules.

The country's four left-leaning parties are expected to bring down the minority center-right government of Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho with a vote of no-confidence on Tuesday, newspaper Diário de Notícias reports.

The center-right coalition that has been governing since 2011 scored only 38.5% in the Oct. 4 general election, failing to secure a majority, even if Passos Coelho's party scored the single highest vote tally.

But when the four left-leaning parties, led by the Socialist Party of António Costa, proposed a majority government, President of the Republic Cavaco Silva unexpectedly refused to allow the coalition (which combined score was 50.7%) to rule, arguing that their commitment to reverse austerity policies, as well as the anti-Euro and anti-NATO stances of the Communist and Left Bloc parties, were a threat to the country’s stability. Instead, he decided to grant Passos Coelho, 51, a second term, and a minority government.

But now that this short-lived experiment in minority government is crumbling, what's next? New elections are not an option in the near future: The Portuguese Constitution doesn’t allow the President to dissolve a Parliament in its first six months, meaning months of great political and economic instability lie ahead â€" unless the left parties manage to convince Silva this time around to take a chance on a majority.
