The former Minister of the Interior, in ’95 joined Come on Italy, the following year he was deputy in the college of Imperia of the Polo Coalition for Freedoms to lead Berlusconi, now mayor, back to the news. Following a blitz during the city council of two carabinieri, to enforce the anticovid measures, the mayor Claudio Scajola he hurls himself furiously against them: “You cannot enter the council chamber. Get out of here, out. “ When one of the two carabinieri replies that “we only ask for the mask”, the mayor replies: “It is not your problem”. “Are you kidding? You can’t go into a public political venue here. You can’t go in and interrupt a meeting.” To which the carabiniere replies: “Let’s not enter into a political question”.
An intervention that was requested by a minority councilor who denounced the non-use of protective devices by majority councilors and members of the junta. Maria Nella Ponte, councilor of the M5s, after having invited the Prime Minister to enforce the use of the device inside the room and having asked the same thing to the municipal police officers present, he left the classroom. “I therefore asked for the intervention of the carabinieri because I was allowed to exercise my right, to participate in the Council in safety “.
After the meeting of the City Council came the note from the Council of Imperia and of the majority council groups: “The City Council has lived today one of the darkest pages of recent decades. It had never happened in Imperia that the council debate was interrupted by a military intervention by a public force. The council and all the majority council groups express their appreciation for the intervention of the mayor who, to protect the prerogatives of the municipal council, invited the military to leave the classroom. The City Council, the highest democratic citizen body, has, by law, statutory and regulatory autonomy which prohibits the entry of the public force into the classroom, unless at the request of the president and after suspension of the session. It is unheard of that there has been a blatant violation of this rule today. We stigmatize the behavior of Councilor Ponte who, while representing the institutions, knows nothing about the principles that govern their functioning and democratic life ”.
