Parties die too. It should be noted that | opinion

This week I was reading the news about the current political crisis in Italy when I heard Francisco Rodrigues dos Santos Miguel Sousa Tavares say on TVI that it is impossible for CDS to die because it is an institution with 47 years of history. Chance reminded me that the time it took for the CDS to live is more or less the time that the Italian Christian Democracy Party (DC) ruled governments almost continuously between the 1940s and 1990s, before it disappeared almost overnight.
