On the question of the bill Zan the leader in pectore of the 5 Star Movement Giuseppe Conte he prefers not to express himself. The former premier, a guest at an event on wine in Rome, intercepted by journalists, has chosen to answer with silence the questions on the bill against homotransphobia. First he hesitated, then he grimaced and finally he walked away. In recent days, the lawyer got in the way of the Cartabia reform on justice. On this provision, however, no comment.
“Should the Zan Bill be approved as it is or do we need changes?”, “Many have pointed out that you have not yet expressed yourself”, “As a political leader, you will tell us what your opinion is”: the reporters asked him. Conte, however, limited himself to wishing them “good work”, before leaving. Many wonder what this choice is due to. A bizarre choice, given that the Zan bill represents one of the key points of the debate in recent days. According to the analysis of Time, it could be either an “excess of caution or political calculation, perhaps with the aim of uploading any parliamentary debacle to the Democratic Party“.
The video that shot the scene, made by Fanpage, was posted on social media by Davide Faraone, parent company of Italia Viva. Shortly before the episode, the senator had complained to journalists about Conte’s reticence on the bill and referring to Grillo, Di Maio and Conte he had said: “They argue over who should express the political line of the party, but on the Zan bill play hide and seek, no one particularly cares about talking in this case. In the newspapers everyone writes that the M5S supports the bill in a fundamentalist way, but has anyone heard a single word on the subject from them? Don’t look for snipers in IV, but Accounts for shooters in M5S “.
