The presidential election represented a defeat for the left, as Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, TV’s most known commentator for the past ten years in the country, was elected President. The PS, divided in two faction candidates (pro-left and pro-right, that is, for and against the current PS Government, supported in Parliament by the left), summed up 27,8%.
