«Roberto Gualtieri? Good person, but I don’t like a candidate who imagines going through a primary without a debate ». Ignazio Marino, former mayor of Rome, analyzes and criticizes the primaries in the interview with Espresso on newsstands on Sunday 20 June: «The Democratic Party asked all the dem candidates who could endanger Gualtieri’s victory to withdraw. Including women like Monica Cirinnà: but how, first you fight for the group leaders and then, when a leadership role is at stake, you say to the women: move, is there a boy? ».
“The primaries make no sense like this. They have become an exercise that the Pd ruling class would like to do without, but cannot. With the idea of a single candidate, a few will vote in Rome, pushed by the candidates for president. Rome is divided into fifteen municipalities: do we each have a thousand voters? In the end they will be twenty thousand ».
Ignazio Marino: «The Democratic Party is without a soul, it cannot be saved. And in Rome he will lose “
Gloomy prediction on the vote in the fall for the Capitol: «The competition, the real one, the Democratic Party is not losing: it doesn’t even see it. It does not take an infused science to understand it: it is clear that the right-wing candidate and the outgoing mayor will arrive at the ballot. The Democratic Party is unbalanced on what is convenient, rather than on what is right: it has lost its soul. He refuses the comparison, but so he dies, is it possible they haven’t understood it yet? ».
Ignazio Marino in the interview also takes stock of the state of the Democratic Party, ever since he reproached Pier Luigi Bersani: “You do politics by distributing leaflets, then you don’t need parliamentarians: scribes are enough.” When he voted to dishearten Letta in 2014: “I talked about it for a long time, with him, in the Capitol, just before his fall.”
On the Latvian era: «I don’t see any differences. We are still in: majority is where Dario Franceschini sits. Open the party with the Agora? I think that with the Democratic Party we have reached the resuscitation phase: we are in intensive care, with the septic and severe patient. When it comes to deciding whether to move forward means only prolonging the agony. It is inoperable. But to build a new left it would take at least two years, someone willing to tour Italy. The territories, not the parliamentary groups. That would be better than the Agora: it would be a real challenge ».
