Suspended for a month by the M5s for voting in dissent with the group
, who instead had abstained. With this motivation, the Arbitrators’ Committee decided on the sanction for the three MEPs Ignazio Corrao, Piernicola Pedicini and Rosa D’Amato
. Corrao, facilitator for local authorities, was also suspended from his post. The same fate, even if the confirmation is missing, should be touched by colleague D’Amato. For the EU member of parliament Eleonora Evi
instead, it was decided to proceed only with a recall. The impeached vote dates back to April 17: the EU Parliament
voted on a non-binding resolution for urgent aid to deal with the coronavirus emergency, but inside it was cited the much contested States-saving fund
. For this reason the 5 stars had decided to abstain en masse, while three of them (the three suspended) had chosen to vote against. “Our opposition was not to a package for economic recovery in the EU, but to a political resolution that contained the poisoned meatball of the Mes inside,” replied Pedicini.
The decision left many surprised inside 5 star movement. And, in the current of the most critical, the suspicion that is being advanced and that the move was made to target some of the names closest to Alessandro Di Battista in view of the next general states. The senator and ex-minister said it openly Barbara Lezzi: “Let’s be clear. This means isolate Di Battistaguilty of having presented a proposal. ” The reference is to the plan for the recruitment of 200,000 young people for the environmental service, presented by the former deputy to Minister Costa in recent days and seen by many as “a flight forward for leadership in the Movement. “Talking about issues, making proposals and asking not to renew an inquisitor at the helm of the most powerful state subsidiary has become a stigma for the M5s,” said Lezzi. “It is obviously easier for the presumed leaders to sit at the table with Franceschini, Boschi and Salvini than to confront Alessandro Di Battista.” And he closed: “National unity, cohesion and participation are preached in this dramatic moment and the M5S becomes a cannibal thus demonstrating all its fragility”.
