Eduardo Ferro Rodrigues


The Assembly of the Republic plays an irreplaceable part in our democracy: this is where the sovereign will of the people is represented.

It is the Assembly that passes legislative initiatives and approves the adoption of laws. This is the place where the government's action is examined and it is the forum of major political debates.

The Assembly of the Republic is required to know exactly how to perform its constitutional duties yet it should also know how to get ever closer to citizens.

Portugal needs a grassroots democracy. We need to ensure that citizens have tools to enable them to understand and appraise what their representatives do. The site is one of those tools.

Welcome to the website of the Assembly of the Republic!
