OOXML in Portugal - the CM Cascais issue

One of the entities that suposedly was representing Portugal in its vote about the aprooval of the OOXML format as a standard was the City Hall of Cascais. Now, the really funny thing is that, when asked about their decision to aproove this format as a standard, the City Hall answered:

«Effectively, CHoC did not emit any kind of opinion against or in favour of OOXML's specification through it's representatives with competence on the subject matter.»


Seems that the person that went there "representing CHoC" was not representing them at all...
