Municipal elections Rome 2021
Maurizio Gasparri, member of the blue staff and senator of Come on Italy, is also the party coordinator in Rome. During the coalition negotiations to design the candidate for mayor his name was also put on the plate, and then the stalemate was dissolved with the designation of civic candidates in all cities. Now he is at the forefront of the center-right election campaign for Enrico Michetti, and in making known the proposals and faces of the Forza Italia and Udc list.
In a center-right where everyone seems to be carrying out a parallel electoral campaign, Gasparri is keen to underline the otherness of Forza Italia compared to its allies: “We indicate a profile of seriousness, there is a need for Forza Italia for cities and in general. We have clearly chosen the line of vaccines, of the Green Pass, because we want to reopen Italy, make it move again, we do not want to ride on minority pockets“And the reference is evidently to the stomach ache in the League in government and the opposition of the Brothers of Italy in parliament.
What about the candidate? “We preferred the unity of the coalition around Michetti,” says Gasparri. A role, that of glue of the unity of the center-right, that Forza Italia plays at all levels: “Within the coalitions there is no doubt that a competition is underway, but Silvio Berlusconi it has always favored cohesion, it has even proposed a single party but many think of their own workshop while we aim for synthesis and convergence because we have to offer people solutions“. Gasparri then underlines the divisions of the opponent’s field between the candidacy of Virginia Raggi, Roberto Gualtieri which says “forced to run” e Carlo Calenda “who only seeks glory to have some votes so that he can negotiate in the next party where he will go“. And precisely on Calenda, which could draw in the same pool of votes as Forza Italia that is presented in a joint list with the UDC in Rome, he does not spare a very harsh judgment:”For being the new, he is one of the most consummate and invotable politicians there are“.
Not exactly in a state of grace according to the polls, Senator Gasparri does not hide “our difficulties in bringing out the profile of seriousness, in an era in which it is more the algorithm, the social trend that dictates the flow of consents, rather than the quality of the proposal “, claiming the choice to go “countertrend by focusing heavily on content“, presenting himself to citizens with”solidity and experience“, considering that “precisely the phrase grillina has shown that improvisation, incompetence is not the solution to bad politics“. And the judgment on Virginia Raggi and the 5 Star Movement governing cities could not be more radical:”Ignorance and improvisation, it is good that the citizens voted for him otherwise he was left with the doubt that those of anti-politics were better and instead they are incompetent idiots and it has been clearly seen“. And on the mayor he says:”He is presumptuous because, asking himself a question and giving himself an answer, he should have stepped aside before even running“.
Important national politician and parliamentarian, former minister and former vice president of the Senate, Gasparri he did not hold back when in Rome it was necessary to roll up his sleeves to revive Forza Italia in the city: “An energetic, recognizable figure was needed to reorganize the ranks of a party that many had abandoned chasing the votes, an old vice, hoping there was a place for them“. It is from here, from the simplest things, from the guarantee of a normal efficiency of the services that the new mayor will have to start again. A work that reminded Gasparri that” we must face the big issues always looking at concrete problems “, and”an opportunity to reconnect the threads with the territories and identify figures of the new generations to involve and entrust with responsibility“.
