Portuguese legislative nonsense - Limit of mandates for Mayors

The Portuguese Parliament passed a law limiting mayors to three mandates - very well.

The law is ambiguous as to whether a mayor, having reached his limit, can then be candidate for  different municipality.

Instead of proposing and ammendment to the law to clarify the situation, the parties leave it to the Courts and the justice system to decide, thus wasting everybody's time and the state's valuable resources - of which the justice system is very short - dragging the issue out for years to come and no doubt lining the pockets of many a lawyer.
