Former Defense Minister Elisabetta Trenta leaves the Five Stars. Trenta, who had been part of the government team at the time of the M5S-Lega executive, announced his decision with a long post on Facebook. Thirty in recent months had taken critical positions towards the management of the Movement. In February she sided with the expelled for the no to the Draghi government asking for their readmission and spoke of a “fratricidal war”.
“I leave the 5 Stars, more precisely this Movement”, writes. And he explains his decision: “This is no longer the house of transparency, democracy from below, participation and consistency with values that are and will remain mine anyway. I leave because the courage to go against, when necessary, has been overshadowed by personalism, because too many compromises and reversals are the negation of the dreams of those who believed in us ”. In his farewell post, Trenta addresses Di Maio directly: “Dear Luigi, I will always be grateful to you for having wanted me as Minister of Defense, giving me a great and unique opportunity. I proudly felt part of your team. We had to and wanted to change the country and instead, among too many fears, the Movement changed ”, he comments. Then he accuses: “For my part, and you know it well, I have never given in on our essential values even when some have turned against me trying to infirm me. The States General had been promised a turning point, a great participatory reflection to restart and instead, not to admit that the base elsewhere, everything quickly ended up in a drawer ”.
Finally, Trenta announces: “I am leaving but I am not leaving politics, I am going down here, just to start over”. And he concludes: “Wherever I go, I will take with me the values that made me join the Movement and that today force me to leave it to realize them”.
