André Ventura announced that Chega will present a request to Parliament to revoke the CPLP mobility agreement, which he considers “nonsense” and a “deception.”
The president of Chega announced this Monday that the party will present a request to Parliament to revoke the mobility agreement in the CPLP, considering that “it has always been nonsense and a deception.”
In a press conference at the party headquarters in Lisbon, André Ventura stated that “the Chega parliamentary group decided to make clear the position that had already been left on the mobility agreement in the CPLP,” he stressed, considering that “This agreement has always been nonsense and a farce”.
Referring to the news that the European Commission has launched a “Infringement procedure” against Portugal for the new residence permits for citizens of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP)The leader of Chega announced that the party decided to “file a lawsuit revocation request” of this agreement, hoping that “it can be discussed in parliament as soon as possible.”
This agreement has to be redone and rebuilt. “Portugal needs controlled, regulated immigration, which provides humane conditions to those who arrive and not a territory without doors and windows where everyone enters anyway,” he argued.
defending that “This agreement seriously violates the rules of European identity and the Schengen agreement” and even despite being “null or non-existent,” Ventura explained that “even out of prudence, Chega will present a request to the Assembly of the Republic to have it revoked as soon as possible.”
The party also wants to summon the Minister of Internal Administration to the Assembly of the Republic “as a matter of urgency so that he can discuss this issue.”
