Together "by choice".

For "five years" and maybe even more.

On the stage in Cagliari to support the candidate who is playing out (on the wire, according to the polls reserved by both parties) the election for governor of Sardinia is the entire centre-right.

And everyone guarantees that there are no problems in the coalition, that the ability to summarize is demonstrated by the facts and to dismiss as "newspaper" stories the tensions that are instead multiplying: from the positions that are not exactly aligned on Russia and Navalny on the eve of the first Italian G7 with Kiev at the center, up to the very Italian controversy over the third mandate of the governors.


    Giorgia Meloni and Matteo Salvini arrive on the island together, same flight but distant places.

They speak briefly in the backstage but everyone is there.

There is Paolo Truzzu, who hopes to leave the tricolor sash of mayor of Cagliari to wear the coat of governor of the Region, aware that the Sardinian one has inevitably become a national stress test for the coalition.

And there is also Christian Solinas, who was "courageous", to quote - among others - Maurizio Lupi, and gave way.

And there is Antonio Tajani who has been campaigning since the morning and also meeting the representatives of the tractor protests.

Who also try, without success, to speak to the prime minister.

Meloni instead will stop briefly with the representatives of the CGIL who were waiting for her in front of the gates of the Cagliari Fair with the banner 'no more deaths at work'.

The issue is at the center of the government's attention, she says, assuring that on Monday the Council of Ministers, which has already examined the issue, will pass new rules which could align, at least "above a certain threshold", the rules of private procurement with public ones.




    From Salvini, who is the first leader to go on stage (usually the lineup sees Fi first, then the League and finally the leader of Fdi), honeyed words arrive for the prime minister: "I found in Giorgia not only an ally and an excellent Prime Minister but a friend", says the Northern League member.

Then she indulges in rallying tones against "the Nigerian mafia" that needs to be "kicked in the butt" and that drugs are "shit" and anyone who takes drugs is "an idiot".

But the deputy prime minister is not "afraid" of either "the left" or "the judges", who have now opened a case on the Strait Bridge.

Now he will also have to deal with the no-confidence request launched by Action which was also associated with the M5s leader Giuseppe Conte.

The issue is always that of relations with United Russia and the positions on Vladimir Putin, which worry not only the opposition.


    That "the more they try to distance us, the more compact and united we move forward" and the declarations of friendship as well as loyalty immediately bounced back to Rome where the rest of the majority continues to bet on a withdrawal, even at the last minute of the discordant amendments on the mandates of the governors (renamed in Fdi as the 'save-Zaia' battle).

Of course, the night will bring advice but at the moment the party on via Bellerio would be intent on reaching a vote, which would record a split in the majority which, however, everyone is trying to minimize.

And given the ally's insistence, the team order would have come from the top levels of the government to quickly close the game.

Without waiting for the outcome of the Sardinian vote, as the Northern League would have preferred.



    Even Meloni, however, ignores the theme on stage.

He dusts off the rallying tones, reels off all the government's results and assures us that we will move forward.

The attack, as usual, comes on the center-left and on that "wide field" of which the Sardinians cannot "be the guinea pigs".

Then the applause, the anthem and the ritual photo.

She laughs and nudges Salvini, who arrives late for the shot and doesn't immediately stand next to her.

Then everyone in order.

Meloni with Tajani and Salvini on the side.

And the whole coalition.

United, at least on stage.
