“I am not leaving the M5S, I helped to found it here in Sicily and it is and will be my home”. Giancarlo Cancelleri escapes all doubts and at the beginning of the press conference convened at the Palazzo dei Normanni he immediately makes it clear that he will remain in the Movement. Yesterday, Undersecretary Grillino announced that he had withdrawn his willingness to run for the presidency of the Sicilian Region in the center-left primaries. “There has been an evolution of the M5S – he says – and he wanted to consider the coalition as one of the most important moments. And the primaries are a fundamental part”. “After about 3 days in which the discussion in Rome has become paradoxical and absurd at times, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy from the Primary”, he continues. “Because there was no talk of what could have been a reinterpretation of the M5S of one of its founding rules, of an idea to change the path – he says – in reality the discussion ended only on me”. “It is a very serious story , and seeing leading exponents of the M5S being put in difficulty in front of the cameras because the only question was whether Cancelleri could run for the Presidency seemed absurd and paradoxical, so yesterday afternoon I called Giuseppe Conte telling him that I was no longer available to the candidacy taking away from the embarrassment and apologizing for having put him in difficulty “. “I stepped aside because I love the Movement. I am serene, I chose to clear the field to favor a more serene decision. It was not the time to make rules ‘ad personam'”, the words of the Undersecretary for Infrastructures the day after the step back on the candidacy. “In the next few hours, already in the early afternoon, the name of the M5S candidate will be announced in the center-left primary”, explains Cancelleri who, to those who point out to him that the deadline is today at 11.59 pm, replies : “And we’ll give it in a few hours.” “I haven’t heard from Beppe Grillo in the last few days – he says again -. It was written that I prayed and I didn’t sleep, but I wanted to reassure you that I slept soundly with my partner Roberta – he says – I lived this story in a serene way. Even these titles I want to categorically deny them “: And announces:” A great adventure continues that is not made up of symbols but of groups, a solid group. This group is in the possibility of having a name for the primary in the next few hours ” . Count weakened by the Sicilian affair? “No, on the contrary. Conte is a person who in the face of difficulties comes out with his head held high. And all this is strengthening him”, then says Cancelleri, speaking of the last few days and adding: “Giuseppe Conte has big shoulders, but very big, to bear such a damn huge burden. Now let’s go ahead I want to start doing some electoral campaigning. ” “We want to remain in the Draghi government but in a calm and above all correct manner, otherwise President Conte will start a series of assessments”, continues the undersecretary, speaking to journalists in Palermo. “It would be out of place if I said so whether it is appropriate to stay in the movement or not,” he adds. “Giuseppe Conte’s meeting with the Prime Minister Draghi was long. We talked about various topics, first of all the node relating to the 110% bonus: after having restarted the building, we risk making it the tomb of more than 60 thousand companies. Among the issues that were raised to the premier there is also that of the petrochemical center of Priolo, which is suffering from sanctions against Russia. We want to weigh within the government and, in a serene and correct way, support it . We await answers on these issues, otherwise it will be Conte who will initiate a serene evaluation “, he explained.
