The President of the Senate: “I will not parade in the parades as they are held today”
Will he celebrate on April 25th? “It depends. Certainly I will not parade in the parades as they are held today. Because there is not a celebration of freedom and democracy but something completely different, the prerogative of a certain left. I had no difficulty as Minister of Defense to bring a wreath of flowers to the monument of the partisans at the Maggiore cemetery in Milan. And it was not a duty. “So the President of the Senate, Ignazio La Russa, in La Stampa.
For many you have appeared more of a party leader than the second in charge of the state, don’t you think you should take a step back? “I contest this and claim to be able to keep the solemn promise in front of the Senate to be president of all, striving to guarantee both the majority and the opposition. Only me have begun to look where I put my feet! I remember that Bertinotti, Fini and Casini were leaders party and were the Presidents of the Chamber. Or I remember the President of the Senate Forlani: other than La Russa! As far as I’m concerned, they have to get used to it: if I am less swamped in form, in essence you can be sure that I will be able to be impartial and possibly not completely excluded from political life “.
