Portugal gov't punished for austerity measures

Portugal's Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho leaves after delivering a statement in Lisbon acknowledging his party's defeat in Portugal's local elections Sunday, Sept. 29 2013. Portuguese voters looked set to hand the coalition government a heavy defeat in municipal elections Sunday, apparently reflecting widespread public opposition to austerity measures and labor reforms being enacted as part of the country's 78 billion euros ($105 billion) bailout.
