Milan, candidate for mayor, La Russa: “The last word belongs to Salvini”
“We at the Brothers of Italy on Milan helped to give our ‘ok’ on some of the names that emerged from the discussion” last Tuesday in the Chamber. And “we have said that we have nothing against Matteo seeing other candidates on his own, which he will then report to us. In the end, if Salvini says one more word about the shared names in Milan, we will have nothing against”. Speaking to the Adnkronos is the senator of Fdi, Ignazio La Russa.
“Of course – he points out – the names of the candidates must not be invented names, but shared; if there are two of them, with a difference of 0.1-0.2, it is correct that Milan has the last word Salvini, as Giorgetti also said, making the parallel in Rome with La Meloni “. The meeting to which the former minister refers is that of last Tuesday in which, in addition to Lega, Fdi and Forza Italia, ‘Coraggio Italia’, Udc, ‘Rinascimento’ and Noi per l’Italia also took part. Summit ended with a stalemate and some discontent. Above all with a question and answer between Giorgetti and Tajani, taken after the first would have pointed out that, since it is not possible to find an agreement on civic candidates, it must be the largest parties, namely Lega and Fdi, to choose the names to be deployed. A clash mediated at the end with the so-called ‘Cesa award’, or the UDC secretary’s proposal according to which the Milan candidate should choose La Lega, that of Rome Fdi, while Forza Italia would be responsible for indicating the names for Bologna and for the regional in Calabria. “We agree with Giorgetti’s words – explains La Russa – and not because these are the biggest parties, but because they are the ones who know their respective cities best and who will then make a decisive election campaign”.
For Milan, the names at stake would be those of the president of Federfarma, Annarosa Racca, the Bocconian professor Maurizio Dallocchio and the former managing director of Infostrada, Riccardo Ruggiero: “These are the names that make up The rose in which to choose – La Russa warns – . And if there is another new one brought by Salvini, so be it “. After all, “among these names, each one has similar probabilities of victory to the other. So – he concludes – we will not have difficulties on one or the other”.
