This chapter analyses the campaign in Greece and Portugal, two of the countries that fared worst in the aftermath of the economic crisis of 2007–2008. The authors conclude that this was the first election since the crisis in which the political discourse in both member states adopted a moderately more optimistic tone than in previous campaigns. Nevertheless, the focus in 2019 was still on welfare issues, such as (un)employment, wages, pensions and taxation.
