(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 4 – Nationalist League leader and
centre-right chief Matteo Salvini said Thursday that
premier-designate Mario Draghi must choose between the proposals
of anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) founder Beppe Grillo
including a wealth tax and the League’s proposals on cutting
taxes.
    “Draghi will have to choose between Grillo’s requests and ours
which are the opposite,” he said ahead of government-formation
talks with the former European Central bank President on
Saturday.
    “Less taxes or more taxes. Less taxes and less red tape.”
Salvini said that unlike some other parties the League was “free” and followed the line decided by the leadership “as one
man” after healthy debate, unlike other faction-filled parties.
    Salvini’s statement was seen as signalling that the League would
not join a majority including the M5S, its former partner in
government.
    The M5S is showing more willingness than initially to back
Draghi while Salvini has said he will support the ex-ECB chief
if he vows to lead Italy to elections later this year that the
centre right expects to win.
    Draghi is looking to the longer term. (ANSA).
