Diverse bird habitats make Northeast Iceland the richest birding area in Iceland, in terms of number of species and abundance of birds. Nearly the entire European population of Barrow’s Goldeneye breeds here and nowhere else will you find higher density of the Gyr Falcon.

Portugal: President vetoes reform of abortion and adoption law

Tuesday 26th January 2016

CONSERVATIVE President Anibal Cavaco Silva vetoed parliamentary Bills yesterday that would have granted full adoption rights to same-sex couples and removed abortion restrictions.

The president insisted that recently passed legislation granting gay couples the same adoption rights as heterosexuals is a radical change requiring broader public consultation.

He says that parliament has failed to demonstrate that it is in the best interest of children.

The head of state is also blocking parliament’s decision to waive mandatory counselling for women seeking an abortion, claiming that such counselling is a common requirement in other European countries and eliminating it would diminish the right to information.

Presidential vetoes can be overturned by a two-thirds majority in parliament, but it is not immediately clear whether the Bills’ backers could muster that many votes.

Mr Cavaco Silva is coming to the end of his mandate and will be replaced by fellow rightwinger Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who romped home in Sunday’s presidential election, collecting more than half the votes against nine rivals.

The president-elect warned that he would use the largely ceremonial post to disrupt the Socialist Party government’s economic plans.

He will take up his duties in March, replacing Mr Cavaco Silva, who has served the maximum of two five-year terms.

The president has no executive power, but he has the power to dissolve parliament if he feels the country is going off track.

The Socialist minority government, which has pledged to reverse capitalist austerity, runs Portugal with the backing of the Communist Party and Left Bloc.
