Giuseppe Conte announced the agreement with Davide Casaleggio for the transfer of subscriber data. Not that the president of the Rousseau association had much choice after the intervention of the Privacy Guarantor: now the “second half” of the 5 Star Movement, as the former Prime Minister called it. In practice, the grillini will equip themselves with a new platform, new Statute and new Charter: the online vote should take place by June to elect the leader.
At the same time as the announcement of the agreement on membership data, Davide Casaleggio announced his cancellation from the 5 Stars: “This is no longer the Movement and I am sure not even my father would have recognized him anymore “, he wrote on the Blog of the Stars. “A few days ago – he continued – I clearly expressed what, in my opinion, was the way to go to resolve the critical issues in which the Movement found itself. I asked all the legitimate bodies to call a vote, making Rousseau available, in order to follow up on the decisions of the members in full compliance with the Statute ”.
“I was told that we want to take another path – added Casaleggio – as unfortunately happened too many times in the last year, sacrificing participatory democracy with repeated statutory violations and failure to respect the decisions of the members, when consulted. I take note with regret ”. Finally, the president of the Rousseau association announced that “with pain, upon completion of the data transfer, I will unsubscribe from the 5 Star Movement as many have decided to do in recent months”.
