He started his political and civic activities at an early age, and rose to become the Director of ‘A Verdade de Penamacor’, a local newspaper. He also joined the socialist youth movement where he became the acting President from 1985-1990 and Secretary General from 1990-1994. During this time he became the Director of the Carrel study. In 1999, he was seconded to the European Parliament to work closely with the Socialists & Democrats group in the EP as a co-reporter on the Treaty of Nice and the Future of the European Union.
