ROME. The electoral thud opens the knot of the Lega secretariat, while at home Pd Goffredo Bettini, national leader of the party, tries Letta the day after the announcement of the congress. Matteo Salvini does not give up for now, but the theme of the extraordinary congress of the Lega is on the table. “The clear victory vanishes what was the only fear for the center-right and the only hope for the center-left: there will be no uncertainties in parliament. Meloni will be able to count on an absolute majority both in the Chamber and in the Senate ”, comments the former Northern League secretary Roberto Maroni. «And now there is talk of an extraordinary congress of the League.

As the voting map in Italy has changed since the Second Republic, so the Italians have voted from 1994 to today
Goffredo Bettini, national leader of the Democratic Party argues that “there is not a single reason for our defeat, and it would be cowardly to throw the cross only on Letta”. After almost twenty years, «the Democratic Party needs a general” coupon “. It must relaunch its identity and a modern critique of contemporary society and the development model that dominates us ». According to Bettini, “we have suffered too much from the myths of liberalism and the fascination of technicians, technocrats, governists at all costs. A true congress serves like bread, also to change the party: in some areas of Italy, familiar, powerful, ethically weak, divided and disliked by important sectors of public opinion ». The future secretary? «A person of substance rather than image. Formed in the field, rather than invented by the media. She is sober and measured, rather than self-centered and lonely. She is cultured, because she has read more books than newspapers. That she is able to present twenty written folders, explaining what she wants to do, rather than constantly experiencing the thrill of the Tweets », concludes Bettini.

“A strong popular mandate has come out of the polls that marks a historic affirmation for the Italian right – says the senator of the Brothers of Italy, Isabella Rauti, deputy group leader -. We presented ourselves with the center-right coalition, an alliance not only electoral but of program and government, which has won and which has its driving force in Fratelli d’Italia and Giorgia Meloni.

10.30 – Muscarà (Mixed group): “A southern table is urgently needed for those who have no voice”
“Following the result of the elections in favor of the 5 Star Movement in the South, it is confirmed that the southerners are still unable to recover from that” Stockholm syndrome “for their tormentor who still intends to govern them”. Thus, in a note, former five-star councilor Maria Muscarà, belonging to the mixed group, comments on the electoral result. “It must be said, however, that almost 50% of southerners have deserted the polls, not to mention the tens of thousands of votes canceled in protest – she explains – in my opinion, however, it would mean putting themselves in the hands of third parties without choosing the own destiny; but certainly, it is the clear symptom of a South that no longer has a voice and has now completely disheartened Italian politics. A Southern work table is therefore urgent, because while in the North the parties are compact for the interests of the companies that sponsor them, in the South we are left to ourselves and the only ones who can save themselves are the capable southerners who really love their land. “.
