Portugal PM to address nation on teachers’ pay

Portugal’s Prime Minister Antonio Costa will address the nation later on Friday after parliament voted in favour of granting teachers salary increases held back over several years since 2005, a government spokesman said. Costa was due to meet President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa at 1400 GMT and would then deliver a televised address from his residence, the spokesman said, without giving further detail.

Such a payout could undermine efforts to balance the budget and some analysts say could lead to a political crisis.
