The crowds and the brawl, the list ei punches. Chaos morning a Naples, where at noon the deadline for the presentation of the lists of candidates at administrative elections of next October 3. In the neighborhood of I was helping, seat of the Neapolitan electoral office, a few minutes from 12 moments of voltage because of those who tried to deliver the packages on the woolen thread. Shout, shoving, dozens of people huddled on the stairs in front of the barrier of the Municipal police. Someone even tried to pass by window a box with signatures. A crowd that did not end even when the office doors closed, with heated discussions with the delegates to the presentation stayed out. What happened to I was helping, however, it is a small thing compared to the brawl that broke out two hours earlier inside the headquarters of the Brothers of Italy, in via Calata San Marco. “I’m on a stretcher in the hospital, then I’ll go to the police station to report it.” The voice is that of Pietro Diodato, former city councilor, running for the next administrative in support of the center-right candidate for mayor Catello Maresca. A ilfattoquotidiano.it tells of the clash with Marco Nonno, regional and municipal councilor of Brothers of Italy (not candidate for municipal of October). Diodato was also supposed to represent the party of Giorgia Meloni, but after what happened in the morning will be present in the civic list of the former magistrate. Those directly involved have provided diametrically opposed reconstructions, certainly both will file a complaint. To hear Diodato, Nonno (who did not answer the phone calls from ilfattoquotidiano.it) in the morning tried to score a blitz to exclude from the lists i candidates of the opposite faction. The two, in fact, have always been opponents in the area of Flat land, a neighborhood of over 57,000 inhabitants on the western outskirts of the Campania capital.
“Yesterday there was a discussion on the candidacies for the presidency of the municipalities, there was a bit of tension and I asked to stop the lists. After a clarification at the provincial and national level with the honorable Donzelli, we have found a political mediation. Everything was back – he said Pietro Diodato al Fatto.it – In the meantime, the regional councilor Nonno had taken the opportunity to compile a new list excluding all of us from candidacies to the municipal companies: he wanted to make a blitz. I noticed it, I tried to stop him, he hit me on the front“. Identical in dynamic, but opposite in the roles la version from Marco Nonno: “When Diodato realized he had no votes and was not supported by match – told a Repubblica.it – arrived like a fury in the party headquarters. After having been to Maresca who also told him that he will not apply for him. He wanted to escape with the package containing the lists for the municipality. When we tried to stop him, he started to head butting, hurting my face. He then withdrew his 35 candidates and in these hours we had to phone everyone to fill the lists again ”.
