(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 16 – New centre-left Democratic Party (PD)
leader Enrico Letta said Tuesday that the brand of politics
practised by nationalist League leader Matteo Salvini had “caused a lot of damage”, answering a question on the Sputnik
vaccine.
    Letta said that in light of the temporary and precautionary
suspension of the AstraZeneca jab after blood clot deaths, “responsible politics is needed because it is easy to stoke
fear”.
    Salvini and Letta have already clashed after the PD leader
re-proposed giving Italian citizenship to immigrants’ children
born in Italy among the PD’s priorities, a proposal which
prompted the League leader to call the former premier a “martian”.
    Long-time foes the PD and the League find themselves in the
unusual position of allies backing former European central
banker Mario Draghi’s recently formed national unity government.
