The Italian deputy prime minister and secretary: her absence today “is not a political choice, she was Berlusconi’s partner and evidently struggles to get back into the political arena”
“We know what Marta Fascina’s position is”, her absence today “is not a political choice, she was Berlusconi’s partner and evidently struggled to get back into the political arena”. Thus the Italian deputy prime minister and secretary Antonio Tajani, on the sidelines of the party’s local bodies assembly in Monza.
“We are working intensely so that Adriano Galliani can be Silvio Berlusconi’s heir in the Senate”, added Tajani, announcing that “on Tuesday I will be here to campaign for Adriano, we are sure that the people of Brianza will go to vote and that Galliani will have the majority, will become a senator and will inherit this symbolic constituency of Silvio Berlusconi for us.”
Tajani announces new entries into Forza Italia
“We are ready to open our lists to representatives of political forces who want to make political agreements with us” in view of the European elections, Tajani said. “We’ll talk about the possibility of opening up to moderates in the coming months, because we want to win and be a uniting force,” she said.
“Letizia Moratti’s membership – she highlighted – has a high symbolic value, but there will be other entries in the coming weeks. This means that Forza Italia is increasingly a force that aggregates and attracts, a point of reference in the centre-right area for those who want to be serious, credible, reliable and responsible. We are loyal, but we are different from our allies and we aim to be the cornerstone of the Italian political system.”
The European elections are “the next stage, but I’m not joking when I say that our objective is 20 percent in the next political elections”, because “there is a great party, that of abstention, which must find a serious point of reference in us and reliable to lean on in times of difficulty.”
