Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho, whose government faces a vote that may topple it in the opposition-dominated parliament, warned on Monday that leaving the path of reforms and meeting euro zone commitments would be ruinous for Portugal.
“The choice we have is clear: between the path of reforms that is gradual and secure, and the path of unrealistic political programs following immediate goals,” he told parliament, adding that with its heavy debt burden Portugal could not be complacent.
“I will not collaborate and will oppose any negative policy leading to Portugal’s ruin, where the Portuguese are seen as mere instruments of political power games,” he said as he presented his government program in parliament.
