Rumors about ‘defections’ in Cambiamo and migrations to Lega-Fratelli d’Italia. The governor closes ranks and asks regional councilors for ‘registered resignations’
The cold war continues in Liguria between Giovanni Toti and the League that has not digested the snipers hidden among the ranks of ‘Cambiamo’ that would have impalled the candidacy of Elisabetta Casellati at Colle and the forward escapes of the governor, increasingly determined to build a third center pole with the Renzians. They tell Adnkronos that the leader of ‘Cambiamo’, perhaps also worried by rumors about possible exits from his movement towards the Brothers of Italy and the Carroccio, would have feared his resignation as president of the Region and asked, through the group leader Angelo Vaccarezza, his advisers to offer theirs if necessary. The national fibrillations would be transferred to the internal chat of the ‘Ligurian totians’, then turned over via whatsapp to other insiders, opening a debate on the political line to be held in the face of the latest attacks by the leaguers who accuse Toti of thinking more about his political future than to that of Liguria. If I want to send the Regional Council home, I do much earlier and without asking, if not to myself, the co-founder of ‘Coraggio Italia’ would have vented with his advisers, ensuring that he is ready to take a step back: I resign and I call the elections, which is foreseen by the electoral law and which I can do at any minute because, he would have emphasized, the law gives me the powers to do it myself …
The ‘threat’ of resignation, according to what is learned from people very close to Toti, would have started following the debate that opened in chat after the proposal launched by the regional leader of ‘Cambiamo’, Vaccarezza, to sign a document in which all the directors agree they say they are ready to put the mandate back in Toti’s hands. Faced with the speculation made in recent days by the League on the divisions of our group, I think it is appropriate to give a strong and decisive signal that it goes in the opposite direction, Vaccarezza would have started. Hence the idea of each signing a short letter of resignation which the President of the Region, if he deems it appropriate, will be able to register. A move, they report, to give a firm response to the League and, at the same time, close ranks.
The proposal of ‘registered resignation’ would have been officially welcomed by all in a favorable manner, leaving the decisions of the governor. Unofficially, however, even some very faithful of Toti – as far as Adnkronos is aware – would have expressed some perplexity about the last moves of the governor considered a politically inappropriate and counterproductive choice, including the latter of the letter of resignation defined half-mouthed a real and proper show of strength also against its own advisors, dictated more by the fear of internal ‘defections’ for how ‘Cambiamo’ is playing the national game with the nascent federation of the center. I do not understand the ratio of fake resignations but put in the safe and the need now for Toti to go to war with his parents too, says a leading exponent of ‘Cambiamo’, skeptical of this initiative. At the end of the debate, again via chat Toti and his advisers would meet next Monday for a meeting with the promise of writing down a document.
Asked by Adnkronos, Toti confirms his outburst but excludes that ‘Cambiamo’ may lose pieces as a result of his political line: ” Am I afraid of defections to Lega-Fdi? But no, absolutely, also because I believe that the question “with a League in the Region” should be resolved in the political arena and with friendly tones. It is clear to everyone that if an alliance that has governed Liguria for seven years and excellently was broken, having overturned one of the redest regions of Italy in favor of the center-right, there would be no other way than to go back to asking the Ligurians for trust. , but of course I believe that all this will not be necessary “.
As for the request for registered resignation, the co-founder of ‘Coraggio Italia’ explains: ” I think it was a proposal from the group leader aimed at expressing solidarity with me, also because technically the resignation would have no result, since the first of the not elected … “.
