The vice-president of the Chamber and exponent of Fratelli d’Italia on Adnkronos: “An analysis of the five years of work of the regional council is essential. Confirming the incumbents? It would be irresponsible to take everything for granted”
To decide the candidacies in the regions “the rule cannot be the division of the candidates between the centre-right parties, an analysis of the five years of work of the regional council is essential”. So at Adnkronos the vice-president of the Chamber and exponent of Fratelli d’Italia Fabio Rampelli intervenes on the tensions in the center-right for the choice of candidates for the next regional elections. The deputy secretary of the League Andrea Crippa asked to re-nominate the outgoing center-right governors without vetoes to get out of the impasse created after Fdi’s no to a new mandate for Solinas in Sardinia and Bardi in Basilicata. But for Rampelli “we need to look at the results obtained by the outgoing councils: where we have done well, we evaluate the possibility of confirmation; where instead there is some reason for disappointment, we evaluate possible changes”.
According to the father of the ‘Gabbiani’ “we need to choose the best possible candidate both to win and, above all, to govern well. An analysis of the five years of operations is essential: it would be irresponsible to take everything for granted and pretend nothing happened“. An analysis of the work of the outgoing council “is an unavoidable task of the parties, because if another rule were to apply, I don’t know what it would be. It seems to me that Fratelli d’Italia only has the Abruzzo region in this electoral round, and it is the first party in the coalition…”, Rampelli further observes.
If for the possible re-nomination of outgoing governors “we were not to rely on the work of the administrations in office, what should be the method? The division based on specific weight between the various parties of a coalition? I don’t think this can be a virtuous method”, remarks the vice-president of Montecitorio, noting that “we, the leading Italian party, have only the Abruzzo region in this round, which has one and a half million inhabitants. There are many methods to evaluate the performances implemented so far by administrations: focus groups, opinion poll institutes… This type of work can also be done with scientific evidence”, Rampelli comments.
The Roman federation of Fdi, Rampelli adds when asked if he will run for leadership, “will hold its congress, having 40 thousand members it is obvious that it will be one of the last congresses of this season. We will look for the best candidate there too. If I run “I do other things, I’m not on the pitch to lead the Roman federation.”
