In 1989 the then deputy director of Expresso, Vicente Jorge Silva, left the paper to found the daily Público in 1990. He was able to secure the services of several important Expresso journalists for the new paper. In the working agreement between publishers and editors Público declares its ideological, political and economic independence and pledges its commitment to high-quality journalism and diversity of opinion. It quickly became one of Portugal's leading papers. It is owned by the World Media Network, which among others owns the Süddeutsche Zeitung, El País, Libération und La Stampa.
