ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political changes that took place in Portugal after the July 1987 parliamentary election. The election marked the first time since 1974 that a single party held majority of the seats in Portugal's National Assembly. The political transformations were analyzed in the context of Portugal's economic, social, and political milieu. Cavaco Silva's party, the Social Democrats, won majority of the seats in the National Assembly, beating many established political parties led by the communists and socialists.
