from the more centrists between the Dems and those who do not recognize themselves in the program of the new secretary


"It is a distinct and distant Democratic Party from the one we had founded that brought together different political cultures from the left to the center, with democratic Catholics, the popular and the Margherita. Today it legitimately becomes a left-wing party that has nothing to do with our history , with our values ​​and our tradition".

The founder of the Democratic Party, Beppe Fioroni, told

Tg2000, adding: "This is why we have created a new network of Catholics and Democrats '

Popular Platform - New Times' to make it the home of all those popular and Catholics who are been marginalized and alienated".

The names of the two grandmothers, one from Tuscany, the other who emigrated to the United States from Ukraine, and a nickname that makes her a citizen of the world: the story of Elena's family Ethel Schlein known as Elly (ANSA)

"Should I make my mandate available as a 'welcome' gesture? I can only speak for myself: it is natural that this is the case. With the election of the new secretary, I would find it normal for the mandate to be put back, I would have done so even if Bonaccini had won And it is true that the parliamentary groups are the place where the party will make the toughest and most determined opposition. The Chamber is the place where today we have managed to make this opposition, I am thinking of the issues of justice, NGOs and the budget maneuver I will continue to do my part",

Debora Serracchiani, Pd group leader

in the Chamber , told the Ligurian broadcaster Telenord


"Elly Schlein's victory in the Pd primaries gives us an unexpected result, which must seriously question us: what the members decided was unexpectedly overturned by the gazebo vote, also a symptom

of a political system that thrives on enthusiasm and the desire to For this reason, the outcome of the vote represents a novelty in the progressive field which is perhaps destined to change the way we conceive representation".

So in a note the vice president of the European Parliament

Pina Picierno, candidate in tandem with Stefano Bonaccini for the secretariat of the Democratic Party


"In the many things read, seen and heard by influencers, intellectuals, municipal and regional councilors, writers and journalists,

it was evident that many non-voters of the Democratic Party would also go to the polls, with the aim of changing the political line of the party

, a new line identified with Elly's candidacy.

As I have often repeated in this congress, change, necessary and useful, is one thing, and another is to remove the reasons that led to the birth of the Democratic Party," added Picierno. I think it must be based on this, as well as on good intentions. dialogue on the future of the Party, its alliances and its way of being in Italian and European politics, on support for Kyiv and its resistance, on its international position and on the fight against all illiberal regimes, on the South and its delays, on its reformist and reforming vocation which was sanctioned by the Lingotto charter of values", continues the note.

for some time the Democratic Party has not been able to look outside itself,

not even to see who was at his doorstep". "Today there are the conditions for a real constitutional process.
