The case raised by It’s the winds by Peter Gomez on the Nine and dal fattoquotidiano.it, provoked the reaction of the tenant from the Farnesina. And it forced the Calabrian politicians to step back. The Regional Council will meet in extraordinary session Wednesday 3 June with only one item on the agenda: the total repeal of the offending bill. The president of the assembly decided it, Domenico Tallini, underlining the urgent need to clarify to the public that the Assembly in no way intends to favor, perpetuate or even restore “privileges“Which have already been canceled. The President of the Regional Council “noted the existence of inconsistencies in the proposed law as well as a non-alignment with the agreements between the State-Regions Conference and the Conference of Presidents of the Legislative Assemblies of the Italian Regions, and therefore considers it essential that the immediate repeal of the changes introduced ”. Tallini is the same one who just two days ago gave an interview to Southern Gazette to say that “the annuities in Calabria have been abolished for some time. I do not see where the scandal is: against 38 thousand euros of contributions paid in a legislature, an end-of-mandate allowance would accrue, at 65, from 600 euros per month “. Now obviously he has changed his mind.
The attack by Di Maio will also have played a role. “I will never stop stressing the commitment of the regions and their governors. Most of all they have been on the field, facing this emergency with maximum effort “, is the opening words of the Foreign Minister on Facebook. “But – he continues – I cannot remain silent in front of such a thing. While citizens have serious economic difficulties and the businesses are hit hard by the crisis, the Calabria region reintroduces the annuity. Really surreal“. The former political leader of the M5s shares the article of fattoquotidiano.it. “I read – he continues – of regional councilors who now would like to retrace their steps. Well, immediately abolish this law. Politics must set a good example. And if he can’t do it in such a situation, then it means he will never do it again. ”
Comment the story with a tweet too Luigi Gallo, president of the culture commission of the 5 Star Movement: “So Meloni, Salvini and Berlusconi intend to save Italian citizens? By giving privileges to their regional councilors! The country will escape from these government figures, I don’t want to imagine how Italian and European money could use it. ” “The center-right priority is and remains the privileges,” said the former minister instead Danilo Toninelli. On Friday 29 May the regional council took less than two minutes to vote on the law proposed by Giuseppe Graziano of the UDC that, at the request of the president Domenico Tallini to explain the rule before putting it to the vote, he replied: “It illustrates itself“. Needless to say, it was voted unanimously. Let’s see how many will vote for the repeal of the law.
