in an interview with Fatto Quotidiano, the former prime minister talks about the tensions that emerged during the race to the Quirinale. “Those of Belloni and Severino were candidates we had discussed, both in the progressive front and with the center-right. They appeared very solid and reliable, and offered the historic opportunity to bring a woman to the Quirinale” said the leader of the Cinquestelle
“Di Maio will have to account for various very serious conducts. To our members and to our community”. It is an internal showdown at the Five Stars that Giuseppe Conte seems to want to start with an interview with Il Fatto Quotidiano. The M5s president reconstructs, in particular, the long hours spanning the majority summit that seemed destined to give the green light to the name of the director of Dis Elisabetta Belloni. “Those of Belloni and Paola Severino – she claims – were candidates we had discussed, both in the progressive front and with the center-right. They appeared very solid and reliable, and offered the historic opportunity to bring a woman to the Quirinale”. A name, that of the head of Dis, who “has never been eliminated” from the squad, adds Conte: “In the late afternoon” on Friday, “Salvini had positively dissolved the reserve on Belloni, confirming the availability of Giorgia Meloni”.

The confrontation with Grillo
Therefore, no “media short circuit” by the number one M5s and the Northern League leader, as said by Enrico Letta: “Absolutely not. I have reviewed the statements. Neither Salvini nor I, nor even before Letta to Sky, had mentioned the name of the Belloni. Even though it was already widely circulated in the press “. And on the fact that it was Beppe Grillo himself, with a tweet, who spread that name, Conte claims: “I spoke to Beppe and we agreed that the director of Dis would be an excellent figure for the Presidency of the Republic. But ban on hypocrisy, this exit had no influence on a game played by various politicians. I am thinking of Matteo Renzi, but not only “. Finally the lunge: when asked if it was the Foreign Minister who “burned” the name of Belloni, Conte warns: “Di Maio will have to account for several very serious conducts. To our members and our community”.
