Meloni: “At the moment we are not allies of Lega and Fi”

The leader of Fdi after the re-election of Mattarella at the Quirinale: “They are with the center-left”. And she adds: “Salvini? I didn’t understand, I don’t think there is much to clarify”

” Not at this moment. “So the leader of Fratelli d’Italia, Giorgia Meloni, replies in an interview with Corriere della sera if Fratelli d’Italia is still allied with Berlusconi and Salvini in the aftermath of the re-election of Sergio Mattarella at Quirinale. “It seems to me that they preferred an alliance with the center-left – he adds – for both Draghi and Mattarella. If a third clue is missing to make a test, that is the electoral law: there are those who will try to change it proportionally. If they stay there, there will be little to add, because with the proportional system the swamp of the last governments is reproduced ”.

According to Meloni, the center-right did not want to try the Quirinale match ” for fear. Not only of the center-right parties, but of many in Parliament. They traded seven years as President of the Republic for seven months of legislature, or if you want a salary, “he says.

As for Salvini, “no, I didn’t understand it, I find it incomprehensible. I found out from the agencies that Mattarella would have voted. The only hypothesis to which all the leaders of the center-right had said no with apparent conviction. And it is the second time that I learn from the agencies of choices on which we seemed to agree and then totally disregarded: first the entry of Fi and Lega into the Draghi government and now this one. ” And when asked if he has heard the leader of the League he replies: “No, on the other hand I don’t think there is much to clarify “.

The center-right “must be rebuilt” according to Meloni. “I do not forget that millions of voters in the nation ask for it. I start with my party, I perceive the loneliness of so many people who did not understand, who did not want it to end like this”, he says. And he explains that ” we are not just right-wingers, we are conservatives, and not armchairs, like others … FdI has already widened its field of action. And the ‘centrists’ are not a separate thing. In all great democracies there is a conservative and a progressive party, in which there are exponents who go from one end of the line to the other. What does not exist in other countries is a transforming ‘center’, which can be formed with proportional, unscrupulous and ready to be anywhere where it is governed. This cannot be in the new center-right that we will rebuild ”.

As for the government in many regions and cities of the center-right, the Fdi exponent recalls that ” the dynamics are different in the territory, they are models that work. We will see in the next few hours what happens, but we will rebuild what has broken today, in a better way. It is a promise, and I am one who, as we have seen, keeps her word. ”
