The day after the election of Ursula von der Leyen as President of the European Commission allegations and notes on poison are exchanged between M5 and Lega. The result is the feeling of facing two opponents and not of the two allies of government
The inkongnita of a commissioner leghista ̵
The Lega's response was very harsh, which speaks in a note of "sabotage" in Europe and an M5 that "exchanged a historic turning point for a chair. "If anyone thinks that the League of Nations votes are a wrong decision," the Salvians thunder.
Conte: "Legally legitimate decision, but could jeopardize the trial of Commissioner" – The air we breathe in Strasbourg between themselves The Northern League is, moreover, prewar. No one shows the slightest remorse for Tuesday's no. And it's unimportant that Von Der Leyen took the place of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, who watched the Northern League coldly turn against the former German minister. Palazzo Chigi's sources recall how the Prime Minister worked in the best interest of the country and not of the business, to avoid that the Commission was led by a dreaded exponent in Italy as a Vestager. But now, as the same sources emphasize, the match is much more complicated for the commissioner.
"The league's no is legitimate, I do not know if it jeopardizes the ongoing negotiations for the commissioner," explains Conte, remembering how the delegation was in competition he was "assured".
The league at work to find "its" commissioner – But the point is how to reconcile a Lega exponent with a program that the league itself rejected. "The commissioners must respect the program of the Leyen," said the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, not surprisingly. At this point in time, Giancarlo Giorgetti may have the chosen profile: it is too risky to send an important Lega man to Strasbourg and, in any case, to an executive who is certainly not a friend. Difficult also for Giulia Bongiorno, another member of the government whose Salvini does not want to rob and where there is definitely the veto of the M5. The veto articulated by Tiziana Beghin also extends to the current Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi. It will be up to Salvini, who returned on Wednesday to weave his European canvas and find the right name at the meeting of Interior Ministers in Helsinki with the indisputable vote of Conte.
