HIGH MINHO: MONARCHICS WANT TO 'DESTROY' ARTICLE 288 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC

Article 288 (b) of the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic remains under close fire by the Portuguese monarchists, and the Alto Minho is no exception. "The Constitutional Review Laws will have to respect the republican form of government." A norm that, said the president of the Royal Association of Viana do Castelo, Aníbal Marinho, makes that "the Constitution is not democratic".

Now, the faithful complain to the crown, this imposition of "republican form of government" prevents a possible referendum on a possible return to the monarchy. "This is an impediment that is not democratic. The people who want to return to the monarchy can not do it because the Constitution prohibits this popular will, "he explained. "In order to hold a referendum, a change to the Constitution will first have to be made. Only then can we think of a referendum, "he said.

For the Royal Association of Viana do Castelo, the changes in letter b would change from "republican form of government" to "democratic form of government". However, for Aníbal Marinho, it is still necessary "some demystification of the monarchical ideal" with the Portuguese. "There are still many people who do not understand it, linking it to the past. The most democratic countries in Europe and where human rights are defended staunchly are monarchies, as is the case in the countries of the north of this continent, "he said. "People will have to understand the role of the monarchy and the king as Head of State. The king is impartial, independent and head of state of all the natives of a country ".

It is already this Friday that the Royal Association of Viana do Castelo, together with the congener of Braga, holds in Viana do Castelo the Dinner of the Conjurated. An initiative that will be marked by the award ceremony of the School Contests organized by the Royal Association of Viana do Castelo, in the academic year 2017/2018, on the theme "October 5, 1143 - The day Portugal was born". Among the individuals that should be present, there are names such as Ascenso Simões, Ilda Novo and José Manuel Carpinteira, deputies in the Assembly of the Republic; Miguel Alves, Mayor of Caminha; and MEP Jose Inacio Faria.

Ironically, while Republicans value the date of October 5, 1910 [the date on which the Republic was established in Portugal], monarchists celebrate the same day ... but of the year 1143. It was on that date, they say, "on which occurred the foundation of Portuguese nationality due to the efforts and merit of D. Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal, who benefited from the work carried out by the Archbishop of Braga, Dom João Peculiar, in favor of the constitution of the new kingdom of Portugal. "

The Dinner of the Conjurated is scheduled for 20:00. It will take place in Quinta da Presa, in the parish of Meadela, in Viana do Castelo.

The APAM - Portuguese Association of Monarchical Mayors argues that the people can choose between monarchy and republic.

The APAM - Portuguese Association of Monarchical Mayors argues that "in the forthcoming legislative elections, it is urgent to elect deputies of monarchical inspiration on a multiparty side so that the ill-fated article 288 (b) of the Constitution can be changed and the Portuguese people can be given the power to democratically choose the form of state representativeness it wants: monarchy or republic ".

The article in question imposes the Republic as the only form of government in Portugal.

APAM President Manuel Beninger told JN that the Portuguese must be able to choose "from an exempt, over-partisan king, defender of our homeland, representative of the 900-year historical legacy of our history, or to continue on" make believe that we are not bad »with the election of a said president elected not by the majority of the population but by the vote of the" less bad "".

"We have a presidential election where the huge abstention of those who do not see themselves in this republic wins any Republican candidate," he said.

The fifth anniversary of APAM was celebrated on Monday in the city of Porto, at a convention with 80 counselors, held under the motto "On the route of the king of Portugal and Brazil in Porto". The event included visits to places of the city where Dom Pedro IV is evoked, in monuments.

The convention was the guest of honor of SOAMAR Brasil - Society of Friends of the Brazilian Navy.

But is the King "over-partisan"? Dom Duarte Pio is quite in the Conservative and Catholic spectrum of society, while maybe he should be more neutral on this.

Does the Roman Catholic Church of Portugal support Dom Duarte Pio in his quest to be the King?

Dom Duarte Pio is not a partisan, but has the support of practically all Portuguese monarchist movements.

Afonso is popular with Portuguese royalists. The Prince of Beira is close to the Portuguese Monarchical Youth (an association of young royalists in Portugal), recently also led a reforestation action in Serra da Estrela and Serra da Gardunha. Afonso also participates in the delivery of the Príncipe da Beira Prize. Afonso has done a good job representing the Portuguese Royal House.

This is so astonishing to know. His zeal will eventually pay off.

Not to put down other 2nd in line (younger generation) of deposed royal families, most of them, doesn't really show great zeal or even show interest in continuing their family legacy.
