“I resigned to save the Democratic Party from the endless degeneration of internal debate. That lesson is served," says the former dem secretary, who replaces Cuperlo at the helm of the foundation
Nicholas Zingaretti returned to the Nazarene this morning. Secretary Elly Schlein has chosen the former secretary to replace Gianni Cuperlo leading the foundation stipulated in the statute of the party. In March 2021, just under two years from the beginning and from his mandate, Zingaretti left the secretariat at odds with the currents declaring: “The dripping does not end. I am ashamed of the Democratic Party, for 20 days we have only been talking about armchairs and primaries ”. Have things finally changed with Elly Schlein? Il Foglio asked Zingaretti during this morning's press conference. This is the answer of the former secretary: “I resigned to save the Democratic Party from the endless degeneration of internal political debateif we are here today to discuss the pillar of the alternative to the right it is also because perhaps that lesson served to bring political pluralism back into forms more compatible with the existence of a party. Pluralism - continued Zingaretti - is a unique wealth, I don't believe in personal and monotonous parties that have a life linked only to the strength of the leader, but it is clear that in our history sometimes partisan identities have proved to be stronger than a collective identity, we paid for this, like the dripping of press releases every time a party proposal was put on the field ".
The former secretary also always answering a question from the sheet denied the hypothesis of his candidacy in the next European elections. “There was only gossip. It was written that I would have 'elbowed'. I am a parliamentarian, in these hours I am leading a battle for the experimental cinematography center attacked by the voracity and desire for government seats. There is no other”.
