Silvio Berlusconi crowns Matteo Salvini leader of the center-right. The former Cavaliere spoke by telephone during the rally of Lega militants in Cervia: “Salvini’s leadership has been strengthened since he began to represent the entire center-right,” he said. Who knows if these words will have pleased Giorgia Meloni, who is competing for the leadership of the center right against Salvini.
Berlusconi, during his speech, reiterated the need to continue on the path of federation between Lega and Forza Italia: “We will return to the government together, as a unitary center-right, of which Fi and Lega will be the beating heart”. As for the Brothers of Italy, Berlusconi focused on the episode of the exclusion from the Rai Supervisory Commission, specifying how it was “a rudeness that we will have to remedy”.
However, there is still a great deal of distance between Salvini and Berlusconi on the issue of vaccines. The Forza Italia leader said: “I am absolutely in favor of the compulsory vaccination for doctors and professors. I respect the opinions of others, after all if we were always in agreement we would be in the same party ”.
Salvini, who, interviewed by Bruno Vespa, said differently: “If there are 10 thousand people in the square on July 31, they must be understood. I don’t think they are no vax, fascists. They ask for rights and the duty of politics is to listen to them ”. On the green pass, the Lega leader added: “I said to Draghi: let’s look at the numbers, let’s not massacre the tourist season. If the numbers tell us to intervene, we intervene but we do not go straight in today. God forbid, but if the situation gets worse in 20 days we will intervene ”.
