Iniciativa Liberal secures its first seat in local government

ALDE Party member Iniciativa Liberal in Portugal won its first seat in local government in the Azores regional election held on 25 October. The party gained almost 2% of the final vote count which is four times more votes than in the general elections of 2019. Heading the party’s list for the Regional Clearing Circle was Nuno Alberto Barata Almeida Sousa.

Running in this election for the first time, the seat is a historical victory for Iniciativa Liberal and another step towards a more liberal Portugal, the party announced on social media.

While the Socialist Party (PS) won the election in Azores, it failed to maintain the majority that it has held since 1996. With Social Democratic Party (PSD) coming in second, the far-right party Chega (ID) is also entering the regional parliament for the first time with 2 MPs.
