Meloni: “Msi played an important role in the history of Italy”

“He ferried millions of Italians defeated by the war towards democracy. He participated in electing the presidents of the Republic: one can agree or not, but it was a party of the democratic right, of democratic and republican Italy. It played a role in the battle against terrorism”. Thus the premier Meloni on the controversies for the celebration of the anniversary of the Italian Social Movement


The one on the Italian Social Movement “is a debate that really struck me. I believe that the MSI is a party that has played a very important role in the history of the Republic, that of ferrying millions of Italians who emerged defeated by the war towards democracy”. Thus the premier Giorgia Meloni, questioned during the press conference at the end of the year on the posts published by the president of the Senate Ignazio La Russa and by the undersecretary of Defense Isabella Rauti on the occasion of the anniversary of the birth of the Social Movement. “It was the party of the republican right – continued the prime minister – fully present in the democratic dynamics of this nation, which came to government before the congress that transformed it into AN. It was a party of the democratic right, of democratic Italy and republican”.

Fight against anti-Semitism

“I don’t like this eternal game of relaunching for which more and more must always be cancelled. The MSI, for example, has always been a very clear movement on the issue of the fight against anti-Semitism. It is a community that has made its way: today some government officials, top state officials come from that experience, they arrived there with a democratic vote. It means that the majority of Italians did not consider that story unpresentable,” the Prime Minister then specified. “I will participate in the celebrations of April 25”, concluded Meloni.
