Lagos, 14 May 2017: ASMAA announced today that they are finalizing a new campaign in the run up to the municipal elections in the Algarve and Alentejo to ensure that Oil and Gas Exploration are firmly placed on the election agenda as a focus point.
As eleições municipais vão decorrer no dia 1 de Outubro deste ano, e a ASMAA acredita que é importante incentivar o voto informado e destacar a posição dos candidatos eleitorais e dos partidos sobre a posição do governo de continuar com a exploração de petróleo e gás em Portugal, face à maciça oposição pública.
