Von der Leyen: if Italy goes into a difficult situation we can act, as we did with Hungary and Poland

from Giulia Ricci

The president of the European Commission: «We work with all democratic governments that want to work with us. We can act “

“We will see the result of the vote in Italythere were also the elections in Sweden. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools, as in the case of Poland and Hungary“. The message is from the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. The question, posed by journalists in Princeton, in the United States, underlined that among the candidates of Sunday’s elections in Italy there were “figures close to Putin”. Von der Leyen’s reference is to the decision taken a week ago by the European Parliament, which approved a report condemning “the deliberate and systematic attempts of the Hungarian government to undermine European values” and urging EU institutions to take measures against Hungary. The text states that “values ​​such as democracy and fundamental rights are at great risk”.

A stance passed with the votes against by the FdI and the Lega, two parties that in recent weeks have been attacked several times for their ties with Orbán and Putin.

In yesterday’s conference in Princeton, von der Leyen also stressed that “democracy needs each of us, it is a constant work, it is never safe”. And on the possible electoral result in Italy he added: «My approach is that we work with any democratic government that is willing to work with us. I know that sometimes we are slow and that we talk a lot, but that is also the beauty of democracy. So we will see how these elections go: even the people, to whom governments must respond, play an important role ».

Meanwhile, in Italy the last few bars of the electoral campaign. “We will never be with Giorgia Meloni, if he becomes prime minister we will be in the opposition and we will never be in a jam between the Democratic Party and the 5 Stars »said yesterday the former prime minister and leader of living Italy Matteo Renzi at a rally in Milan. Attacks on the dem leader Enrico Letta and Giuseppe Conte with whom he had already had very hard clashes. “He – referring to citizenship income – makes a vow to exchange with state money”. Door closed also to the left of Nicola Fratoianni who had made a timid opening towards the Third pole. Today the closing of the electoral campaign in Rome with Carlo Calenda. Final rush also for + Europe and for the Green-Left Italian alliance. “For me it is simple – said Emma Bonino – either you are with Orbán or you are with the democracies”. Nicola Fratoianni and Angelo Bonelli choose the Imperial Forums. On the stage they carry the rainbow flag: «It is time to put a word that has disappeared from the public vocabulary back at the center of politics: peace. We ask that Italy and Europe become promoters of an initiative so that that horror of the war in Ukraine does not spread and become dramatically ungovernable “
