Mario Draghi, who flaunts confidence in words and has made it known to those who spoke to us that he does not intend to step back and wants to go straight with his “chosen ones” along viale Mazzini, take a pen and paper, because we are about to tell Matteo Salvini to give the green light to Marinella Soldi to the Presidency of Rai (it being understood that in those parts even Fuortes is not welcome, but politics can do nothing about the choice of the CEO).
The League Captain’s request menu includes the landing of Gennaro Sangiuliano on the command deck of Tg1 as the first course (perhaps ‘balanced’ by Mario Orfeo to whom, according to the well-informed of Viale Mazzini, he might not mind driving Rai 1). In second place there is also the request for a General Management for Marcello Ciannamea, a top RAI executive whom Salvini would have wanted as CEO. And many in the “Rai party” thought exactly the same way, especially after learning the names proposed by Mario Draghi.
But let’s go back to the requests of the Lega a Draghi: Salvini would also like the confirmation of Auro Bulbarelli at the head of Rai Sport (also thanks to the success of the European football players), the confirmation of the current leaders of the TGR, the regional newspaper which obviously reasons has always been in the hearts of the League and a greater “weight” for Isoradio and his director Angela Mariella. However, the League has also targeted “Rai24”, the new public service information portal that could become an independent newspaper tomorrow. The project is now ready for launch and could be one of the first acts of the new management. Last but not least, the leaguers would love to put their hats on the “English channel”, that Rai English that has been talked about so much in recent months.
Then there is another worry that worries Matteo Salvini a lot, but this time it concerns the future composition of the CDA: according to the first calculations, after the vote in parliament, the composition could be decidedly biased in favor of the center-left: 5 councilors to 2, if Laganà is also considered close to the left (as often happened in the last council). This worries not a little the Northern League Captain (and also Tajani and Giorgia Meloni to tell the truth) in view of a possible future arrival at Palazzo Chigi. There will be an electoral campaign and the fear that is already spreading in the center-right is that a CDA thus composed will end up penalizing it.
