A few hours after the verdict of the primary of the center left a Bologna a bomb explodes in the house Pd. To release the torpedo is Isabella Conti, the strong-willed candidate of Italia Viva who challenges the favorite exponent dem Matteo Leopore, councilor supported by the powerful Emilian and national apparatus of the Democratic Party. The Renziana, writes Jacopo Iacoboni on Print, “denounced that the Democratic Party denies both the data on online registrations of voters, and a check in the voting phase “.
The request of the committee of the mayor of San Lazzaro di Savena, quite obvious since it was a confrontation between two allied political forces (so to speak) but distinct, was that the online voting procedures were subjected to a external auditing, i.e. a third and independent authority. Conti had also identified a possible name, that of Stefano Zanero, professor of cybersecurity at the Politecnico di Milano. The Democratic Party, however, refused Zanero and did not even agree to find another “referee” candidate. “Perhaps – suggests Iacoboni controversially – because a team of experts could have seen how the computerized voting system was made, and if it were manipulable or alterable?”.
A very ugly shadow on the primaries that the Democratic Party has considered for years a flagship of its policy but which, in fact, closely resemble the highly contested votes of 5 Star Movement on Rousseau platform. How it ended up, among the grillini, is well known: a very painful human, political and economic big bang. “In the evening the numbers will arrive, we will take them for good because we trust, as we trusted the Rousseau platform”, sarcastically concludes the journalist of the Turin newspaper, very familiar with the things of the 5 Stars and always very critical of the organization imposed by Casaleggio.
