“If necessary and if the primaries are not those of 2012, and not even those of Bologna, I am ready to take the field for Palermo”. Carmelo Miceli, national deputy of the PD, speaking with Adnkronos announces his willingness to run for mayor of the Sicilian capital. An intention that goes hand in hand with a political project that must have as key words “expand, open up, contaminate ourselves”.
“We must create a coalition starting from what we were in the Conte 2 government before and in the Draghi government now – he says – With the awareness that Pd and M5S are not enough, we don’t have the numbers. a good result but it does not give us self-sufficiency. And above all we must remember that when we ruled in Sicily we did it with the moderates “. The field indicated by Miceli is a wide field: Italia Viva, Ferrandellli, Action. “Only Forza Italia, the Lega and the Brothers of Italy are out,” he underlines. Totò Cuffaro’s new DC? “Also. I’m not afraid of confrontation with anyone and as a guarantor I say that Cuffaro has served his sentence and is a citizen like any other – says the deputy dem – They tell me that this new DC is a team made up of young people … because Don’t they show up? Are they from the center? Are they from the center?
And Orlando? “It is insane to think of doing an electoral campaign without Orlando. This last council had several difficulties but Orlando, and his vision of Palermo, have made the history of this city. Orlando must be invited to discuss and must do what he has done so far. did not do: help build after him. If the question is if I want Orlando in the coalition, the answer is yes and if for someone (M5S ed) his absence is the condition for being together, then everyone on his own path “. Miceli thinks of “coalition primaries” to be done quickly. “I want to hope that at Christmas we also celebrate a candidate and a defined coalition”. And on Palermo he adds: “Whoever will lead this city must know that his first act will be to proclaim the instability but whoever takes Palermo also takes cities with gigantic potential, as there are no others. Palermo is not simply the capital of Sicily, it is the capital of Eurafrica “.
