The Portuguese Labour Party (Portuguese: Partido Trabalhista Português, PTP) is a Portuguese centre-left political party currently led by Amândio Madaleno. It was recognized by the Portuguese Constitutional Court on 1 July 2009.[1][2] It had 3 seats in the Legislative Assembly of Madeira from 2011 to 2015. In the last Madeiran election, the party ran on an electoral list with the Socialist Party, the People–Animals–Nature and the Earth Party, in an alliance named Mudança (Change), which elected one PTP deputy.[3]
