A “Half past eight“, The political analysis of LA7, Thursday 3 June, Matteo Salvini comments on the polls that show the growing Brothers of Italy by Giorgia Meloni: “The League is always the first party”.
In the close face to face with Lilli Gruber, Matteo Salvini denies that the League is in decline: “Where is Meloni better than me? In reality, the latest polls show the League on the rise and largely the first party ”. But the presenter: “The SVG survey says that Meloni is at 20% and she at 21%” and Salvini slightly annoyed: “At 21.7% and we are growing two weeks in a row. If Meloni, the Lega, the center-right and Forza Italia grow, I’m just happy. The problem would be if the Democratic Party grew. I’m not worried, my opponents, not enemies, will never be in my team, in my community, in my family. My opponents are PD and 5 Stars ”.
Gruber urges him: “But you are used to being the strongest in the center-right coalition and since the first party also expresses the Prime Minister … if Meloni goes on like this she will be ousted quickly”, the leader of the Lega replies seraphic: “If the center-right grows and according to all the polls the League is still largely the first party … A woman premier? Let the Italians decide. I would like them to choose a clever prime minister, have clever CEOs and mayors. I don’t choose them based on whether they are men or women. Then we in the League have candidates for many women and we have chosen them because they are good, not because they are female. We’ll talk about it again in a year and a half. In the meantime, we will accompany Draghi in this government experience until the end, until 2023, because the results are being seen ”.
