In a long open letter, the Lega exponent admits that he has made communication errors, denies being a fascist and apologizes to anyone who has felt offended or hurt by his words. “It is clear that, in my toponymic proposal on the municipal park of Latina, even in absolute good faith, I made mistakes. I am sorry for this and, ready to pay the price, above all I apologize. I am sorry that it was attributed to me a “fascist” identity, in which I do not recognize myself in any way. I am not, and have never been, a fascist. And, more generally, I am and will always be against any dictatorship and any totalitarian, right-wing ideology or left, “he says. The leader of the League, Matteo Salvini, thanks his party colleague “who unlike others – he underlines – leaves his chair for the love of Italy and the League, and in order not to slow down the work of the government, irresponsibly placed in difficulty because of of daily and instrumental polemics on the part of the left “
Satisfaction is expressed by the Democratic Party. “Above all, those who have government responsibilities must have more responsibility. All this to say that I consider Durigon’s resignation a duty”, says Senator Andrea Marcucci al Tempo. The same concept is expressed by the secretary of the Italian Left, Nicola Fratoianni. “No act of courage or love of country: the resignation was simply a duty, indeed to be honest they are months late since that end of April when the first Fanpage investigation into his dangerous relationships came out. A discrediting page for the government of our country “, he reiterates.
The M5s with the MEP Mario Furore, claims that Durigon’s resignation came “thanks to the pressure of the 5 Star Movement” and “in enormous delay compared to the serious events of which he became the protagonist”. “Without him the government is more credible and comes out strengthened”, he continues.

Government, Crosetto: Durigon had to resign first, his problem is that he is not on the left
“Durigon’s problem is that he is not from the left. Salvini thought it was enough to wait and let the night pass but for right-wing politicians it doesn’t work like that, forgiveness does not come”, explains the co-founder of Fratelli d’Italia, Guido Crosetto, in an interview with La Stampa. In his opinion, the resignation was inevitable. “That proposal was unacceptable and there is no justification, I don’t understand how to advance such an idea. I say another thing: do you think that a scandal would have broken out if they had found 10 thousand euros in Durigon’s kennel …”, Crosetto he explains: “When you hold institutional positions you have to assume your responsibilities, in my opinion he should have resigned much earlier. By staying in his post he caused greater damage to himself and to his party”.
