The Democratic Party and the node of returns. D'Alema is called out


The return of Article 1 in the Democratic Party is now a done deal. The National Directorate approves Speranza's report: "A serious alternative to the right" (ANSA)

The return of

Article 1 in the Democratic Party

is now a done deal.


National Directorate

of the political force led by

Roberto Speranza

approves the report in which phase 2 of the Nazarene is viewed favorably, expressing "a positive assessment of the contents of the

Manifesto for the New Democratic Party

" presented to the Assembly on Saturday.

And it is underlined that in this way "the foundations are laid for the construction of a serious alternative to the right" in Italy.

The "members of Art.1" are therefore invited "to actively participate in the congress phase, starting from the vote in the circles, by signing the commitment to join the

New Democratic Party by 31 January

in 2023, as required by the approved Congressional Rules".

    Despite the official reports and notes, the recomposition between the

Democratic Party and the 'cousins' of Art.1

does not appear to be an easy transition.

At least judging by the comments of Dem exponents, such as

Enrico Borghi

, who does not want to hear of a name change to "justify" the return of the secessionists.

"The thesis according to which the Democratic Party should dissolve or change its name to allow Article 1 to re-enter the Democratic Party is as if Puerto Rico sets as a condition for entering the US that they change their name", jokes the parliamentarian who recalls historical precedents such as that of the Pdup "who rejoined the PCI without however demanding abjurations".

    Apart from the change or not of the name, on which controversy and jokes continue to rage on social media also for the acronym that would derive from it (Pdl as the former center-right party or Padel as the game that rages between young and old) are the vetoes placed on some leading figures such as

Massimo D'Alema

who poison the climate even more.

As demonstrated by the clarification that the two parties are forced to make: "In the construction of the constituent path that led to the approval of the Manifesto of the New Pd never between

Enrico Letta


Roberto Speranza

reference was made to individual personalities and even less to Massimo D'Alema". The person concerned smiles and does not give in to provocations: "I have been retired for 7 years, I do not participate in the debate", he replies to those who ask him to reply.

    It is difficult to attempt to erase history without leaving after-effects to complicate a bitter but "politically necessary" reconciliation.

So much "necessary" that the candidate Stefano Bonaccini found himself forced to remark: "I care little that managers and former managers return, I am interested in recovering those 7 million voters that we have lost along the way".

While the other candidate,

Elly Schlein

, does not hesitate to talk about "family reunification".

Instead, you look favorably on the change of name

Andrea Orlando

who, in addition to confirming "consonance" with Schlein, says that "rebuilding the party with a name, program and symbols is a bet worth making".


Bonaccini, Schlein, Gianni Cuperlo and Paola De Micheli

, after the confrontation on TV with Lucia Annunziata, will be around Italy and will meet with the women of the party at the Nazareno to talk about each other and take stock of the programs.
