M5s, Patuanelli against Emiliano. “Supports an ultra-right mayor”
The alliance between Pd and M5s is shaking. Tough clash between Stefano Patuanelli, Minister of Agriculture and leading exponent of pentastellati and the president of Puglia Michele Emiliano. In Patuanelli the governor’s endorsement did not go down to the mayor of the ultra-right of Nardò (Lecce), Pippi Mellone, who decided to reapply as mayor of the Salento city. “Surreal the support of Emiliano for Mellone”, bluntly pronounced Patuanelli.
“The alliance with the Democratic Party is a relationship that must be built – explained Patuanelli – it cannot be a cold fusion that does not work, but a relationship that must be done in the territories. In some places we have done it. In others a little bit. less”. The short circuit continues. And it risks burning more than a few political relationships.
