Fedriga asks for more resources from the Pnrr for his Friuli-Venezia Giulia. New trouble for Fitto
"My region is in last place for per capita funds, a rebalancing is needed. Unacceptable differences," says the Northern League governor. And on the appointment of the commissioner in Emilia-Romagna: "It is good that the president of the region has an important role"
"Friuli-Venezia Giulia is in last place for funds per capitaother realities had 600 percent more. A rebalancing is needed". The appeal for a fair division of the European funds made available by the EU under the Pnrr comes directly from the governor Massimiliano Fedrigain an interview with Corriere della Sera. The Northern League president speaks of "unacceptable differences" between the resources assigned to each region, just as in these hours the government, in agreement with the implementing bodies, is drawing up the document with the formal requests for modifications in Brussels. The governor Giuliano therefore requests that proposals be made to the Commission of "derogations on implementation times for some specific projects": warning, in general, that the European plan "cannot be ideologised".
The most marked criticisms then refer to the "strongly centralist imprint of the Pnrr that completely cuts off our institutions". An approach which, according to Fedriga, is attributable to the Conte II government, while the current center-right majority only arrived "with the game in progress". But the clash between those who try to centralize powers in Rome and the individual governors who ask for more responsibility, also brings up the Minister of European Affairs, Raffaele Fitto, which has recently released a three-page plan in which the prerogatives in the hands of the regions in the use of European funds are reduced. Precisely for this reason, the dialogue between the minister who holds the Recovery dossier and the governors remains a priority: "He told us he will do what he can", says Fedriga.
In any case, the first objective for the president of Friuli remains the reform for differentiated autonomy: "If there is a gap between the regions, it is due to centralism", he underlines, adding that Minister Calderoli's text "allows instead to shorten distances". And, finally, Fedriga also spends a word on the choice of the extraordinary commissioner who will have to guide the reconstruction of Emilia-Romagna: "Having said that in the specific case it is not for me to decide but for the government, it is good that the president of the region has an important role", comments the governor of Fvg. Words that, perhaps, will make the leader of his party turn up his nose, Matthew Salvini: who, although he denied yesterday, does not seem to be exactly enthusiastic about the possible appointment of Bonaccini.
