Silvio Berlusconi on Radio Capital says that if the presidentialism passes, Mattarella must resign. Letta warns: after Draghi now Mattarella, dangerous right. The electoral campaign brings up the President of the Republic, while doubts are raised by the center-left and even the radical right about the sincerity of the FdI leader, Giorgia Meloni, who filed away fascism in the presence of the foreign press. At least a belated demarcation for most, only strategic for others, with the corollary of new requests as proof, such as the removal of the iconic reference to the MSI in the symbol of the Brothers of Italy. Meanwhile, the center right presented his program for Italy, personally signed by the leaders of the coalition. Here too, doubts remain: in the text in 15 points more than a split would be camouflaged. The former historical forceist Maria Stella Gelmini blesses thealliance successful between Renzi and Calenda and he bets on the continuity of the relationship between the two “pillars” of the nascent third pole: “They both believe in it and have made generous and uncomfortable choices. Now we will steal votes from everyone”.
