Long-distance controversy between the mayoral candidate of the progressive camp in Genoa and the current mayor
Genoa – Grondaonce again reason for electoral clash between the candidate for mayor of the progressive camp in Genoa, Ariel Dello Strologo, and the outgoing first citizen, Marco Bucci, after the words of Minister Enrico Giovannini, who hinted that the definitive go-ahead for the construction of the infrastructure can arrive by the summer. “I am very surprised that we continue to expect something from me – says the aspiring Giallorossi at Palazzo Tursi, this morning on the sidelines of the public assembly in Spediporto – the mayor Bucci and the governor Toti have been in government for five years. , so we have to ask ourselves why the Gutter has not left first. Last night, Mr Rixi said that the government is waiting for the end of the elections to decide to leave, but I ask him what they have been waiting for in these five years. “Words that make Mayor Bucci go on a rampage. who a few minutes away replies in annoyance: “One should at least be ashamed of this statement because it is those who support him who have stopped everything because they have been in government. At least a little dignity: not only does he say that he wants half of the Gronda, which is a truly shameful thing, but to argue that those who are with him have defended the work it really takes lion’s courage “.
Bucci says he is “a bit perplexed” even by last words of Minister Giovannini that “has clearly made it clear that we are waiting for the new mayor to make sure that everyone agrees for the Gronda. But whoever does not agree on the Gronda and the infrastructural works shouldn’t even be here at this meeting. It is hallucinating that no one has the courage to take a stand with respect to the Gronda: we have needed it like hotcakes for twenty years “. And he reiterates, referring to the proposal supported by the left and the Five Star Movement to achieve only the doubling of the motorway section of the A7 Genoa-Milan: “To say that one makes half of it is to make fun of the citizens. Someone must have the courage to say things as they are: we cannot stand still or even take steps backwards, which would be the sign of happy degrowth. This is not what Genoa wants “.
Dello Strologo-Bucci, question and answer on public confrontation
The candidate for mayor of Genoa for the progressive area, Ariel Dello Strologo, also attacked the mayor Marco Bucci for avoiding a confrontation during the Spediporto assembly. The organizers, according to what Ansa learns, would have proposed a comparison to the two candidates on port issues, but the mayor made it known that he preferred the comparison with Dello Strologo at the end of the electoral campaign, so two moments were organized for the two separate discussions on the same issues.
“It is yet another case of disregard for the healthy electoral debate. In doing so, Bucci does not adhere to the democratic values of confrontation and violates the right of citizens to know and compare the opinions of mayoral candidates to understand their differences, beyond mere propaganda . – states Dello Strologo – Once again the mayor shows little respect for the spirit of the elections and for the Genoese who have the right to compare the proposals for our city. I ask Bucci to demonstrate civicism and respect for the Genoese and Genoese , in such an important moment as the administrative elections, which are the maximum moment of confrontation and the salt of democracy ”.
To Dello Strologo who accused him of evading the confrontation at the public assembly in Spediporto, Bucci then replied: “I must also be the mayor, I left because I had to make an intervention at the exhibition for the 30 years of the anti-mafia investigative direction” .
