Enrico Letta he wants to go back to an MP. The secretary of the Democratic Party has the reserves are now dissolved and this evening to the provincial leadership of the party he will say his final yes. It will be him, in all likelihood then, – we read on Corriere della Sera – to compete for the seat of the Chamber left free by Pier Carlo Padoan, (became the president of UniCredit), in the supplementary elections to be held in the autumn. Not an easy choice, despite appearances. The leader dem in fact he absolutely does not want that his personal electoral campaign is carried out at the expense of what he must do as secretary of the Democratic Party ahead of the October elections.
But the pressing of the Tuscan dem, – continues on Courier service – which they had instead answered spades to the idea of nominating Giuseppe Conte in that college, he is very strong. The reason that pushes the leader of the Democratic Party to evaluate the possibility of running is basically one.
Letta is well aware of the fact that the election of the next President of the Republic is a fundamental point for Italian politics. And it is one thing to be in Parliament when the Colle games open, it is quite another to be outside it, with senators and deputies who have not been chosen by him and who partly do not respond to the current secretariat.
The race for the Sienese seat, however, will put the number one of the Nazarene in a must address a thorny issue for the Democratic Party or the privatization of Montepaschi, a bank in the past closely linked with the main party of the left that only in 2018 lost the leadership of the former Tuscan red stronghold for the first time in history. Privatization and it stew of the oldest bank in the world have always been hindered by the Tuscan Democratic Party headed by the President of the Region Eugenio Giani (banking Mps), a position that in the Conte-bis government had split the Dems.
