Referendum cut parliamentarians, Di Maio: true populist supporters of the NO

“They use the lie of compromised representation to hold onto their privileged status”


The date of the confirmatory referendum on the cut of parliamentarians is approaching and Luigi Di Maio lashes out against the supporters of the No: “Who knows how the supporters of the No will take it now, the same ones who lie saying that the reduction of 345 MPs will compromise representation. to call us all populists? Could it be that they are the real populists? “.

The outburst of the dem secretary on Repubblica: “It is no longer possible to bear the hypocrisy of those who act to destabilize the current political framework”.

The former political leader of the M5S and foreign minister comments on Facebook a study by the Cattaneo Institute according to which with a Yes victory our country would be in line with other European partners.

According to Di Maio: “Despite all the privileges, for years they remained motionless, not a step forward, asking for sacrifices only and exclusively from the Italians. And today they even try to use them, taking the lie of the representation as a pretext just to keep their status of privileged people. I find it bleak “.

The law on the cut of parliamentarians, historic workhorse of the Five Star Movement, was definitively approved last October and provides for a reduction of 36.5% of the members of both branches of parliament which would go from 630 to 400 in the Chamber and from 315 to 200 in the Senate.

The latest polls on voting intentions remain in agreement on the fact that the Yes is ahead of the No, but the gap between the two options varies and then there are the undecided.

Yesterday Alessandra Ghisleri, director of Euromedia Resarch, explained to La Stampa that 42% of those interviewed say they will vote Yes and that 15.8% is on the No vote, while 40% do not yet know what they will vote. According to the latest Winpoll poll, however, the No is on the rise: it is given at 34%, against 66% for Yes.
