Lega, Salvini and Le Pen in Pontida: together in the battle against the European left

As combative as ever, but more mature. More attentive. Determined to recover lost votes after the support given to the Draghi government (a choice little appreciated by many center-right voters). Convinced that the real battle against inflation, energy costs and the fight against immigration are now fought (and tried to win) only in Brussels. Matteo Salvini does not back down an inch and, in fact, relaunches his idea: that Italian moderates be on the side of Marine Le Pen. From the true right. The French leader recently confirmed that he will be the special guest on the Pontida stage next Sunday for the traditional League rally.

The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport announced this in an interview with Il Giornale. “On stage with me will be Marine Le Pen who will arrive directly from Paris by plane – highlighted Salvini -. Here we have to decide whether we are going to leave Europe to the left that imposes an electric car and a green house, how and what to eat at the table but doesn’t lift a finger to defend our borders. Do we want to leave Europe to the socialists and Macron? The European right is divided into three large families, but the Italian center-right also brings together three or four groups. We have our differences, but we respect each other and strive to achieve great common goals. I talk frequently with Le Pen, we have a common vision on many points, I believe she can give us added value.”

At these times a video of Le Pen herself was also released: “Dear Italian friends, it is with great pleasure that I will be by your side in Pontida on September 17th, invited by my great friend Matteo Salvini. We will naturally evoke the future, the joy of fighting together for freedom, for the democracy of our people and our nations.” A video also published on social media by Matteo Salvini, in which the French leader explains his presence at the meeting of League activists do Norte, scheduled for next Sunday.
