Ronzulli, Forza Italia: "I don't understand the clamor, I asked Berlusconi to leave the leadership of Lombardy"
"Let's be clear: there is no current." The Forza Italia Senate leader, Licia Ronzulli, at the ceremony for the inauguration of the academic year of the Vita Salute San Raffaele University in Milan, wanted to clarify some points after the internal earthquake in the party which in recent days led to the appointment of Paolo Barelli as group leader in the Chamber in place of Alessandro Cattaneo and replaced Ronzulli herself in the regional coordination of the party, now in the hands of the force-man Alessandro Sorte. «I read about Ronzullian currents, about deputies and senators close to me. I have been in this party for twenty years and it is obvious that there are people who are more or less close, but humanly, certainly not politically. There is only one political line in Forza Italia and it is given by President Berlusconi, talking about currents is stupid just as it is stupid to talk about splits. Anyone who knows politics knows that things can only be done in unity. Forza Italia must remain united. The timing and methods amaze and can amaze».

Furthermore, Ronzulli herself would have asked for the change to the Lombard leadership: «I can't understand the clamor, I had already asked President Berlusconi for some time to leave the leadership of Lombardy because the group leader in the Senate must be a temporary job full".
On the figure of Cattaneo, Ronzulli then explains: «we know that Alessandro will have to give a big hand to the reorganization of the party. I am sure that he will be able to give the party a big boost and make it grow again ». The force worker also tries to throw water on the fire by quoting the survey carried out by the Emg company which sees Fi growing compared to the last survey, reaching 8.5%: «I think that having arrived like this with a growing trend means having worked hard Well". The parent company in the Senate of Fi also denies the press rumors that speak of a phone call that took place between her and the leader of Italia Viva, Matteo Renzi, after the internal reorganization of Forza Italia: «This thing about Renzi who called me I read like you in the newspapers, but I don't know. There was no phone call."
