  7. Basic income essential says Crimi

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 4 – 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Vito
Crimi said Thursday that the populist party, the biggest in
parliament, would tell premier-designate Mario Draghi Saturday
that maintaining its flagship ‘citizenship wage’ basic income
policy was essential for the M5S to back his
government-formation bid.
    Crimi said some other parties had been calling for Draghi to
ditch the policy when he draws up his proposed agenda.
    The head of the formerly anti-establishment party said that the
basic income had been a “shield against social tensions”,
especially during the COVID pandemic induced recession.
    “Now, more than ever,” Crimi said, “no one must remain left
behind”.
    He said the M5S would listen carefully to what Draghi has to say
and will “bring to the table the M5S with its history, its
battles and its visions”. (ANSA).
