“Now the main road is to ask Brussels immediately for an extension of the deadlines in order to have time margins to deal with the dossier”. This was stated to Adnkronos by Carla Ruocco, president of the Commission of Inquiry on Banks and exponent of the 5 Star Movement after the negotiations between Mef and Unicredit started in July on the potential acquisition of Mps were today officially interrupted. “We had already asked in recent months for an extension of the terms for the negotiations due to the complexity of a negotiation with a single buyer and a deadline”, remembers Ruocco. However, notes the chairman of the Commission of Inquiry on Banks, “the problem would have been greater if the Treasury had yielded on everything”. Ruocco recalls that “there should be a limit. It is right that there are conditions but there should be a limit. Banks must not only protect savings, but also have a function that has an important social impact”. Now, therefore, “it is absolutely necessary to capitalize and obtain an extension of the terms with Brussels in order to obtain a fair” MPS “value with buyers more inclined to listen to the conditions of the Treasury”. In this negotiation with Unicredit, Ruocco adds, “the Treasury has put the stakes and made a move that has safeguarded the coffers of the state, the citizens. It is a positive sign”. The dossier, he concludes, “remains on the table of our commission”.
