According to RTP’s public network report, the new text received 138 votes in favor and 84 votes against. There were 5 abstentions. The majority of representatives of the Socialist Party, the left-wing party, and the 13 members of the main opposition conservative Social Democratic Party were in agreement, so the ball was returned to the head of state.
