Yesterday I said very sincerely that when you work for the common good, when you work in a spirit of service for others, you are committed all one’s strength and therefore it becomes an enormous effort. So no tiredness – he added – the enthusiasm of the people multiplies energy, it is with the people that politics acquires consistency “.
No alliance with the Democratic Party: “Citizens would not understand”
“Citizens – he explained Conte – they wouldn’t understand. Citizens understand the concreteness and solidity of the political proposal, not such abstract allies “.” We cultivate a continuous and constant dialogue with the forces of the center-left area and with the Democratic Party in particular – he added -. But in some territorial realities this has not been possible, and one of these is Turin. I personally regret that there has not been the possibility, and I certainly do not impute it to the 5 Star Movement, to create a common project with shared objectives for this city. There has been a stiffening by the local Democratic Party, we acknowledge it “.
The praise of Appendino: “He did an important job”
Conte then spoke to honey for Chiara Appendino: “The project that we present in Turin is concrete and solid, a project that is strong in administrative experience. The outgoing mayor has done an important job, and in my opinion the 5 Star Movement he has all the credentials to present this proposal: a government project for a new 5-star mandate for Turin. I think it is a very competitive proposal “.
The defense of citizenship income
The criticism of citizenship income “comes from politicians in short pants, the ones they wore when they started doing politics”. Thus began the former premier Giuseppe Conte, a Novara to support the candidacy for mayor of the outgoing 5-star city councilor Mario Iacopo.
Conte argued that the controversy raised against the Basic income “are instrumental”. “Only 12 thousand people fully perceive it, for the others they are adjustments – he says -. Politicians who do not know the difficulties, living on politics, do not perceive the social value of our conquest”.
