Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I recall reading somewhere that turnout in this election was lower than the 2009 election, and that younger Portuguese voters had some of the highest abstention rates. Is that accurate?

If so it would go a long way to validating Migeru's point above about a lost generation not being willing to use a failed political system to produce change.
