“I will not return political leader of M5S”

Luigi Di Maio on a mission to Tripoli

Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio will not return to the leadership of the 5 Star Movement after the long experience that ended last January when the Deputy Interior Minister Vito Crimi was chosen as regent.

Di Maio confirmed this today during an interview with RTL:

I’m not thinking of becoming a political leader again, but strong leadership is needed. When I resigned in January, I said I was hoping that the responsibilities could fall more on the shoulders of more people. Because if the leadership is unique, then the others lose their responsibility.

Thirteen days after the vote, Di Maio admitted that discussions on possible alliances with the Democratic Party, as is happening with the government, “had to be managed better”. This will inevitably lead to a dispersion of votes on more candidates. On the front of the referendum on the cut of parliamentarians, Di Maio seems convinced that the Yes front will win:

I am confident that many citizens will vote yes in the referendum. The point is not just a question of costs but it is a process of modernization of the country.
