«An unprecedented violation of the most banal norms of pluralism. State television is paid for with the money of all Italians. Today it is estimated that 20% of those Italians votes for Brothers of Italy and Brothers of Italy have no presence or representation either on the Rai board of directors or the chairmanship of the Rai supervisory commission which usually belongs to the opposition ». This was stated, on the sidelines of the presentation of his book in Pescara, the leader of FdI, Giorgia Meloni, referring to the appointment of the new Rai board of directors.
“When key pieces of the holdings of our democratic institutions are picked off, they become precedents. Today Brothers of Italy pays that precedent and tomorrow someone else can pay it: the only opposition party is not represented for the first time in the history of Italy and I believe that this is everyone’s problem, not just Brothers of Italy “. Thus the president of Fratelli d’Italia Giorgia Meloni, speaking of the composition of the Rai board of directors. “I’m sorry this thing happened in the general silence. I am sorry that the highest institutional offices, starting with President Mattarella, have not decided to intervene to prevent such a vulnus from being created and I continue to pose the problem of a nation that is violating fundamental rules “, he complains. «The Parliament has decided, the parties have decided. They decided that the only Italian opposition currently and the main Italian esteemed party is excluded from public service, paid for by all Italians. Whether it was decided by Parliament or not, it remains a scandalous decision ”, concludes Meloni.
The Council of Ministers had, in fact, confirmed for the Rai Board of Directors Marinella Soldi e Carlo Fuortes who will assume the role of CEO.
