Political Resolution - XV PCP's CONGRESS [Chapter 1 and 4]

I - The International Situation

Speech by Agostinho Lopes, member of the Political Committee and Secretariat of the Central Committee, Lisbon, Portuguese Communist Party National Conference

"For the renewal and strengthening of Party Organisation and work among working people"

This Conference is not a magic wand nor a recipe book, however much the proposals contained in the Resolution may appear to you to be so. There should be no illusions. There should be no expectations other than those that result from a renewed confidence in our Party. In its purpose, in its strength. In the strength and purpose of the workers' struggle.
