Rumble / Trending NewsAccording to Reuters, Portugal’s ruling Socialists are prepared to ditch their far-left allies and go it alone at a general election in October, emboldened by their sound economic management and a weak opposition to seek majority rule.
The gambit was boosted by the Socialists’ strong showing at Sunday’s European elections with 33.4% of the vote - making them the continent’s most popular center-left party in percentage terms - as they captured support from the center-right.
