The article discusses issues related to socialism and politics in Portugal. The decision of the country's chief of staff Antonio Ramalho to resign to present himself as one of the presidential candidates during the June 27, 1976 election was attacked by various criticism especially on Ramalho's motives to enter the politics. It notes that some political candidates of the election want to implement the system of socialism with a human face. However, Ramalho's socialism is the one with stone face due to its extreme obscurity.
