The result has secured a strong new mandate for the prime minister, António Costa, a champion of balanced public accounts. The result, boosted by a higher than expected turnout despite the coronavirus pandemic, comes as a surprise after the Socialists had lost most of their advantage in recent opinion polls, and means Portugal will have a stable government to oversee the application of EU pandemic recovery funds Subscribe to Guardian News on YouTube ► http://bit.ly/guardianwiressub Portugal general election: PM António Costa wins surprise outright majority ► https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jan/31/portugal-general-election-pm-antonio-costa-wins-surprise-outright-majority The Guardian publishes independent journalism, made possible by supporters.
