    Portugal supports the resolution as proposed by Brazil.

    We believe that Mr. Ouattara won the election fairly and that Mr. Gbagbo should accept his defeat as soon as possible, or else face repercussions.

    This is a rather amigious position being held by Portugal.

    Does Portugal support Brazil in calling for a second election or does Portugal believe that Gbagbo should accept defeat and leave?

    [ooc] Omg, I should really read more carefully. [/ooc]

    To clarify (there was an error in communication at some stage between Portuguese officials), Portugal doubts the validity of the first election and supports Brazil's suggestion.

    Brazil does not see the two as mutually exclusive. Whilst the most desirable option would be for Mr Gbagbo to stand aside, Brazil believes that the likelihood of this happening is virtually nil. Therefore, the only chance to avoid significant bloodshed is to conduct a further election under more stringent international scrutiny, so as to remove any ambiguity over the result that involved parties may, however erroneously, believe in.
