Title

"After the procession we put away the saint"

Description

In this cartoon, five men, each representing different Portuguese political parties (PC, MDP, CDS, PPD, PS), parade a confounded 'emigrant king' on a float, who carries a burning candle representing his vote. Meanwhile, one of the party representatives collects "electoral funds". The caption repeats a popular Portuguese idom: "After the procession we put away the saint."
