“Today I preferred to leave the excellent Sicilian regional coordinators of Fratelli d’Italia to participate in the meeting called by themselves to find a common solution to the question of the indication of the candidate for president. They anticipated that they will listen carefully to any proposals from the allies, even though convinced that the optimal solution would be to immediately confirm the outgoing President who is in the lead in all the polls. For our part, on the recommendation of Giorgia Meloni, we will not make alternative proposals to Musumeci ready to evaluate those of the allies, especially if they are clear and unambiguous. In this case we reserve the right to give our reply in a short time which, only if positive, will it allow us to define an agreement on the other top positions immediately afterwards “. This is what Ignazio La Russa, senator of Fdi, affirmed, when asked about the situation in Sicily.
As for Raffaele Stancanelli, whose name had been circulating with insistence in recent days, La Russa – answering a question – explains: “he is my friend and I hope he will remain so even after the decision of FdI not to be available to advance any our candidacy after Giorgia’s engagement with Musumeci. There is therefore no judgment or veto on Stancanelli, who is an excellent politician, just as there is no against at least three other FdI names potentially suitable for the role. the decision to loyally keep faith with the position assumed convinced that, even today, Musumeci would be the best candidate if he found the adhesion of the allies with the appropriate agreements “.
