President Augusto Santos Silva
The Parliament is the house of democracy.
It ensures the representation of the whole country in its diversity; it holds the primacy of the legislative function, and it has exclusive competence in matters such as those relating to rights, freedoms and guarantees; it scrutinises and monitors the acts of the Government and the Administration; and it is the centre of democratic political debate.
This means that the Parliament is an open house. Open to all the representatives that the people choose freely, and open to all citizens.
This page is a key tool to communicate with everyone, to disseminate parliamentary activities and to provide accountability.
The Assembleia da República is your house.
The President of the Assembleia da República
Augusto Santos Silva
