Draghi: Let’s put rows aside, work together says Salvini

(See relation story on political crisis) (ANSA) – ROME, FEB 12 – League leader Matteo Salvini said
Friday that he was ready to put aside differences with his
political opponents to make a government led by
Premier-designate Mario Draghi a success in a time of national
    “We will remember COVID for decades. It is one of those periods,
like a war, that leave a mark,” Salvini told Mediaset
    “You have to forget ideologies and rows. It is the time to work
together to reconstruct the country, putting aside likes and
dislikes, (whether we are) nationalists or pro-Europe”.
    The League leader said he was in synch with Draghi “on concrete
issue and the real urgent needs of Italy”.
    On the other hand, Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the Brothers of
Italy (FdI) party, said Friday that the right-wing group would
assess the cabinet Draghi chooses and the government’s programme
before deciding what to do in confidence votes in parliament.
    Unlike the League and the other member of the centre-right
alliance, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia (FI)
party, FdI has said it will not back Draghi’s executive.
    It remains to be seen whether FdI abstains in the confidence
votes or votes against. (ANSA).
