After the 2021 administrative elections, “even in Rome I expected a little better. In Latina we still have the majority of the municipal council”. Like this Claudio Durigon comments on Repubblica on the electoral result in the Pontine municipality, where the center-right candidate Vincenzo Zaccheo, supported by the League, lost almost ten points in the second round despite having a clear advantage in the first round. “It was the low turnout – explains the former Northern League undersecretary – that determined this result. These elections were little felt. But we already have 53 percent of the city council, 18 out of 32 councilors, now we have to decide what to do. We have seen that the fascists do not exist. They did not vote!”, He says referring to Salvini’s words according to which the abstention was caused by an electoral campaign in which there was too much talk of fascists, who exist only“ in the history books ”.
Abstention, according to Durigon, is not a local phenomenon, but is due to “a national wind. There is a deviation of people from the vote, that’s what we need to focus on now. You have to get people back to vote by talking about the things that really interest them. And I don’t think anyone who doesn’t want the Green Pass has the strength to determine this result. There are very few who do not have the vaccine in Lazio. It was the choice between two mayors. I only see an electoral défaillance that must make us reflect on the issue of detachment of people from voting, especially since these are administrative elections for which this disaffection is a bad sign ”.
