(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 24 – Ex-premier Giuseppe Conte said
Wednesday that the 5-Star Movement (M5S) is looking for ‘synergy” with the Democratic Party (PD) after meeting Enrico
Letta, the new leader of the centre-left group.
    The M5S has asked Conte to come in and renovate the
anti-establishment group with a long-term horizon.
    The PD and the M5S were allied in backing Conte’s second
government until another member of the ruling coalition,
ex-premier Matteo Renzi’s centrist Italia Viva (IV), brought it
down by pulling its support at the start of the year.
    Like almost all the parties in parliament, the PD and M5S are
also currently supporting Premier Mario Draghi’s executive.
    “It was a highly productive meeting,” Conte told reporters after
the talks.
    “We spoke about the vaccination plan and the need to support
families, firms and workers.
    “A worksite is opening in which we must work to create the right
synergy.
    “The PD is sure to be a preferential partner of the new M5S.
    “If you run alone, you are less effective.
    “There is a desire for dialogue, starting with the upcoming
local elections, to find more effective solutions”.
    Letta, also a former premier, agreed that the talks had gone
well.
    “It was a first, highly positive face-to-face meeting of two
exes who were both thrown into a new, exciting adventure, almost
at the same time,” said Letta via Twitter. (ANSA).
