 Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is a Professor at the University of Lisbon’s Faculty of Law, a legal consultant, state counsel and politician.

It is, however, as a political commentator on the television programme "Insights from Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa," which every Sunday follows the evening news on TVI, that Marcelo truly finds himself in his element, drawing a wide audience from all sides of the political spectrum. Through the power of his political analysis he is able to influence, hold sway and deftly manoeuvre with an ability that many of Portugal’s ministers and deputies do not.

Godson of Marcelo Caetano and son of a former minister who served under the New State, Marcelo co-founded the periodical O Expresso together with Francisco Pinto Balsemão and is a founding member of the Social Democratic Party.

As a university Professor, the many attributes of his genius are born and manifested through his enormous passion and talent for teaching.

In Portugal, he is known affectionately as "Prof. Marcelo."

But Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is much more than that.

The brilliance demonstrated in exercising his role as Professor of Constitutional Law is matched by his extraordinary communication skills, elegance and sense of humour, as well as his unavoidable – and indeed unique – eccentricity.

The charismatic lightness with which he delivers his Sunday night political commentary and the amazing ease with which he switches from politics to the economy and then to football, as well as the amusing way he intrigues his audience, are just some of the very rich facets of an absolutely exceptional individual.

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who once said his "greatest political ambition is not to have any political ambition", has put himself forward, soberly and somewhat hesitantly, in January 2016 to run for the highest office in the land.
