White smoke in the center-right in Sicily. After days of controversy and names burned, day after day. “For Forza Italia, Renato Schifani’s candidacy is the best possible candidacy for the Presidency of the Sicilian Region, so we gladly accept Fdi’s proposal”. This was announced at Adnkronos by the President of the Sicilian Regional Assembly, Gianfranco Miccichè, coordinator of Fi in Sicily. Yesterday Brothers of Italy proposed, surprisingly, the name of the former President of the Senate Renato Schifani as candidate for the presidency. And many have waited all afternoon for the green light from Forza Italia, which never arrived. While words of consent came from the center, also from the former Governor Totò Cuffaro. But the leaders of the Azzurri in Sicily remained silent all day. In the evening, the parliamentarians, councilors and provincial commissioners of FI in Sicily, in a note, gathered around Miccichè stating that: “he is the only one capable of bringing the coalition to success”. And Miccichè himself has relaunched and proposed to the coalition the name of Barbara Cittadini, national president of AIO. This morning the definitive yes to Schifani’s candidacy. The former President of the Senate is on trial in Caltanissetta for revelation of official secrecy in the trial on the former President of the industrialists Antonello Montante.
