The leitmotif is always the same. Matteo Renzi starts from last night’s episode of Otto e mezzo on La7 to reiterate that the one on the Open Foundation “is a scandal, a state hakeraggio”. “In the 94 thousand pages of the Open investigation, – Renzi harangue at the Festival de Linkiste – it was not even a mafia trial, and that will remain as a scandal of a political trial to politics” they found “nothing”, adds Renzi. “They took my mobile phone, my current account – he says – the photos of the garden of the house, I can’t stop at the motorway restaurant, I have nothing to fear, they checked everything for me”. As for the e-mail from journalist Fabrizio Rondolino, in which he suggests the creation of an anti-grill propaganda structure, Renzi assures that “it has remained a dead letter because I don’t want to have anything to do with Il Fatto”. Theses already said and repeated pending the results of an investigation that will run its course anyway. Then, the lunge to the “friends” of his former party, the party he led as secretary. “The Democratic Party – Renzi says – is the party of the blah blah blah that plays at trying to divide the people it has next to and sacrifices the real strategic plan and we have seen it with the Zan bill”. The Democratic Party, in short, for his former secretary “discusses issues and waves the flag and then does not bring home the result. And those like Zan who I wanted in parliament come to give me lessons on civil rights, he certainly knows how to pass from the Democratic Party to the League because he was from the League and is now in the Democratic Party “.
Then the passage on the Quirinale. The only important step of this parliament today, argues the leader of Italia Viva – is the election of the President of the Republic. “This operation is not done by putting flags and I say it to the right and to the left, it is not done with the abacus but by creating the conditions of consensus for the candidacy that is stronger and political intelligence is needed for this, the more you divide and the more the quorum is made far”. “The election of the President of the Republic is a balanced thing, of political tactics, of balance, you do not elect him by slamming him in the face of others but listening to their reasons – he added -. The name is honestly the conclusion of this path, the last two names, namely those of Mattarella and Napolitano, came out last minute, in the previous two days. There is a method which is to keep the names covered as much as possible. The election of the President of the Republic is the triumph of politics against populism and therefore people who know how to do politics and not who think of likes will be able to work “. Finally, on Mario Draghi, the leader of Italia Viva explained that “he would be the president of the Republic perfectly, he would be a great president and an excellent president of the Council even beyond 2023, he would be a magnificent president of the European Council – he concluded -. Draghi can do everything but we must avoid getting lost in names, I will not enter into this discussion on names ».
