Jorge Coelho (1954-2021) The man who never wanted to become PS General Secretary | death

António Guterres was still prime minister when he announced his successor: Jorge Coelho, his number 2, would make an “excellent leader of the PS”.

I was grateful for the memory, but no. “I don’t want to be a leader of the PS, I have neither appetite nor ambitions.”
