In 19 February 1995, he won the leadership of the Social-Democratic Party over José Manuel Durão Barroso, after Aníbal Cavaco Silva left the leadership to try to run for President. On 1 October 1995 the Social Democrats lost the elections against the Socialist Party after a 10 year rule of the Social Democrats. After the defeat of Aníbal Cavaco Silva in the 14 January 1996 presidential elections, he resigned, and was latter replaced by Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa."
