Portugal’s lawmakers vote on the 2015 state budget at the parliament in Lisbon October 31, 2014. Portugal’s Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho also reiterated on Thursday that his government will stay the course of budget discipline in 2015 – the year of a general election – to make sure the country continues to distance itself from the financial “danger zone”. Under the draft 2015 budget, which parliament will vote on in a first reading on Friday, Portugal will cut the budget deficit to 2.7 percent of gross domestic product next year from this year’s projected 4.8 percent.
