The M5 and the alliance with Mastella: together they elect the mayor in Somma Vesuviana

It seems that the Prodrome are going back to beneventthan the Pentastellati supported Clemens Mastella in the vote against candidate Pd. Unofficially. TO Vesuvian sum (Naples) the office became official: M5s and Mastella together, allies. With much blessing from the Senator Sandra Leonardo Mastellatogether with the Minister for an election initiative on the stage Luigi di Maio: “I’m glad to be here with him, because when you’re with decent people, there are no hybrid things and we don’t exclude dialogue with anyone,” reports the online version of Il Mattino.

How much water has run under the bridges. We’re not here to recall what the Casta movement thought in its early days, of which Mastella has been cited as one of its longest-lived exponents. We limit ourselves to photographing the existing one and in Somma Vesuviana it went like this: the outgoing mayor, Salvatore di Sarnoreapplied with the support of seven lists, including M5s and sum to centerlocal emanation from We in the center, the party of Mastella. In support of Di Sarno, the MoVimento withdrew in extremis from the coalition with the Democratic Party and other citizen lists that proposed it Giuseppe Bianco. The decision was made by the local MP Gianfranco di Sarno. “Five years of joint opposition and then the local leadership group of the Five Stars has all but disappeared in the last 72 hours, making impossible what could and should have been a natural consequence of the path of these years or of an alliance in the face of the next administrative elections,” wrote he Valerio di PietroCoordinator of the Metropolitan Secretariat of the PD of Naples, a few hours before the lists were closed.

Things went well for the M5s, the anomalous alliance was rewarded with the victory. Salvatore di Sarno was re-elected Mayor in the first round almost 70 percent. Good but not very good news for the pentastellati, stopping at a not exceptional one 5%. A result influenced by the controversy that accompanied the decision to reposition. Because the MoVimento a Somma has not only allied itself with Mastella, but also with the exponents of Giorgia Meloni’s party: a citizens’ list Brothers for Sommawith obvious references to the Brothers of Italy, it changed its logo and name at the last moment Total tomorrow. But they always have been.
