Welcome to the official page of the Presidency of the Portuguese Republic. Here you can find information about the Portuguese Republic and its History, as well as the activity of the President of the Portuguese Republic, Dr. Jorge Sampaio.

We live in a society where the access to information is of Growing importance. Among the many aspects that characterize this new information society I would like to highlight just one. The spread of tools and means for accessing information allow, as well, greater transparency and contact between the bodies of political power and the people, thereby contributing to the reinforcement of democratic regimes. It is certain that for this the mere existence of means is not enough. It is Essential that the Sovereign Bodies, of The State administration and of political agencies in general make an effort to use these means to ease access to information and to knowledge about their own functions. That is what this Page seeks to achieve. I hope that it will contribute to a better understanding of the Activity of the President of the Republic.
