Portugal's embattled Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho, fiercely criticised for his austerity policies, wants nothing more than to resign from his job, the premier's father said in an interview published on Wednesday.
"He wants one thing: to be done with it all. And the family will celebrate when he will be free from all of it," 86-year-old Antonio Passos Coelho was quoted as telling Portuguese daily "i".
In the interview, he said he had encouraged his son to become involved in politics but had warned him against taking the helm of the government.
