Pd, former sardine Mattia Santori reveals Elly Schlein’s moves: radical turnaround

Elly Schlein’s surprise victory in the Democratic Party primary turns the party’s arc decisively to the left. If Stefano Bonaccini, because of his alliances, looked both to the left and to the center, Schlein’s Pd fga exulted the more movementist left. The Democratic Party “does not take one step, but ten”, says Mattia Santori, leader of the Sardinha movement and one of the supporters of the new secretary of the Pd. “I’ve been with Elly Schlein since day one, I can assure you she hasn’t let anyone dictate any rules. She’s listened to the grassroots and has shown the leadership team that it’s 2023 and that the female leadership they’ve been waiting for ten years is finally here” , he enthusiastically tells the press.

Farewell to the dialogue with the center. “It will be a party without half measures, a more radical party in its choices”, announces Santori. “When the right is in government, it is necessary to have a left that is more coherent with its ideas and values.” Club members preferred Bonaccini. The peer-to-peer voting open to all launched Schlein. A possible problem for leadership recognition. “Certainly, some soul-searching will have to be done by anyone who thought that the Democratic Party was the party of administrators. It is clear that the request is from a people’s party”, argues Sardina who dodges (” I don’t need papers, I’m happy to have been part of a democratic process that has no equal in Italy”), but it could play a role important in Schlein’s Pd.
