José Álvaro Machado Pacheco Pereira, GCL (born January 6, 1949 in Porto) is a Portuguese political analyst, historian and politician, a member of PSD .

Biography[edit]

He was born in Porto and graduated in Philosophy from the University of Porto. He was the son of Álvaro Gonçalo de Lima Pacheco Pereira (born August 4, 1921 in Porto, Bonfim), related to the Lords of Aveloso by bastard line, and wife Maria Celina Machado (July 5, 1921 in Porto – 1997).

He was a militant of a marxist-leninist party, before the 25 April 1974 revolution. He left the far-left in 1976. He later became a member of the Portuguese center-right Social Democratic Party, and was a Deputy (i.e. Member) of the Portuguese Parliament for three mandates and Vice-President of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2004.

He is a permanent collaborator and commentator of the Portuguese written press (newspaper Público and magazine Sábado) and television (SIC Notícias). He also teaches at Instituto Superior de Ciências do Trabalho e da Empresa (ISCTE).

Pacheco Pereira has mixed conservative and liberal political and social views. He supported Iraq War in 2003, like most of his party. He supports abortion but opposes gay marriage, which he believes promotes homophobia.[1] He is against adoption by same-sex couples. He already stated several times that the Portuguese Constitution should drop the prohibition of fascist parties.

Personal life[edit]

He married in Porto on November 7, 1975 Isabel Maria de Seabra Correia Soares, born at São Vicente de Pereira Jusã, Ovar, on September 11, 1949, daughter of Manuel Correia Soares and wife Maria Ludovina Correia de Seabra, and has one son, José Gonçalo Soares Pacheco Pereira, born in Porto in 1985.

He lives in Marmeleira, Rio Maior.
