New Government
Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho will keep Maria Luis Albuquerque as finance minister in a new government that might be blocked by opposition parties that now hold a majority of seats in parliament.
Paulo Portas, leader of the conservative junior coalition party CDS, will stay as vice premier, and Luis Morais Leitao will become economy minister, the presidency said on its website. The new government will be sworn in on Friday.
