Critics come from all sides, from left to right and pass the PS itself. As President of the Eurogroup, the Portuguese Minister of Finance, Mario Centeno, made a video about the end of the assistance program for Greece, but its content has been heavily attacked.
After the socialist representative João Galamba wrote on Twitter that the video was "regrettable" for "clearing the disaster", that was the adaptation program for the Greeks, it was the turn of PSD deputy Miguel Morgado and the leader of BE José Gusmão does the same.
Miguel Morgado wrote that Centeno "spent three years cleaning up the Portuguese clean exit of 2014 – achieved against all opposing efforts of the PS – and now with sweet words undoing a country that has been devoured by problems after eight years of bailout [resgate financeiro].
José Gusmão, of the BE, regarded the video of Centeno as "ridiculous", except "offensive to the Greeks and enlightening for the Portuguese". Ironically, Gusmão noted that this initiative by Centeno means that the Eurogroup won a representative in the Portuguese government – that is, it was not the Portuguese view of the tools that arrived in the Eurogroup.
In statements for the Público, BE's most important spokesperson for economic issues, Mariana Mortágua, found Centeno's speech about "dangerous for the future of Portugal and Europe". This is because "having a Eurogroup president who believes that the crisis is the fault of the Greeks and not of European policy is a sign that he is willing to [a linha de rumo] European institutions and blackmail policy ".
The video came on the day Greece finishes the rescue program and is played by Mário Centeno as president of the Eurogroup. The first fierce criticism came from Yanis Varoufakis, the former Greek minister of finance, who compared it to "North Korean propaganda."
