Portuguese politician, winner of the February 20, 2005 elections in Portugal, leader of the Socialist Party, which he joined in 1981. In 1987, he was elected to Parliament and has since served as Secretary of State in the Environment Ministry, Deputy Minister to the Prime Minister and Minister of the Environment.

He was prime minister from 12 March 2005 – 21 June 2011. On 23 March 2011, he submitted his resignation to the president after parliament rejected his government's austerity measures in a vote, leading to the Portuguese legislative election of 2011. After losing the election, held on 5 June 2011, he resigned as Secretary-General of the Socialist Party.

On 21 November 2014 at 22:30, he was arrested in Lisbon, accused of corruption, tax evasion, and money laundering, becoming the first ex-PM in the history of the country to be thus accused. On 24 November 24, Sócrates was remanded in custody on preliminary charges of corruption and tax fraud.

Source Notes

Felipe Ferreira quoted 5 September 1957 from birth certificate in hand wirting, "The birth place in the B.C. is wrongly stated as Vilar de Maçada, Alijó; for matters of sentimentality, his father had him born in his home village in the register."

On 1 December 2014, Patrícia Azenha Henriques send a copy of BC per email which holds 6 September as birth date. Ferreira confirmed that 6 September was correct also in the handwritten original birth record; there had been a typo in the original email to ADB.
