The Northern League staff denies any possible internal tension, but the adherence of the Carroccio to the Manifesto of sovereignists, also signed by Giorgia Meloni, Viktor Orban and Marine Le Pen, returns to highlight the difference of views, already emerged in the past, between Matteo Salvini and Giancarlo Giorgetti in terms of foreign policy and alliances to be fielded in the international chessboard. All the more so now that the Northern League has professed loyalty to that Europeanism that Mario Draghi has hoisted as the flag of the Government since his inauguration.
Giorgetti: “I didn’t have time to read the sovereign manifesto”
“I’m telling the truth, I didn’t have time to read the” sovereignist manifesto of the European right, “said the Minister of Economic Development, Giorgetti,” Lorenzo Fontana, a person I know and whom I am dealing with, is working on it. trust “. On the other hand, the Minister of Economic Development is the most institutional man in the League, the one who would like to join the EPP and distance himself from the most radical sovereignty, represented by Orban.
Giorgetti aspires to join the EPP
Fontana, after a phone call with Giorgetti himself, opened a confrontation with the European People’s Party. “In Europe – he explained – the objective of the League is to have greater strength to have an impact. With the Manifesto signed in recent days we can get out of isolation and aspire to be the second group in terms of number of parliamentarians in Europe. We want to dialogue with the EPP to have in the European institutions the same scheme that already governs in so many member states. The turmoil created among the socialists all over Europe who fear losing their influence in the EU institutions has been discounted. We work to grow and prosper the EU. Europe on the basis of common values: this is the lighthouse that guides us. It is clear that these objectives are the same for all leaguers, Giorgetti included “, he concluded.
