De Luca asks for Campania autonomy

After Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia Romagna

(ANSA) - Naples, February 15 - Campania Governor Vincenzo De Luca on FRiday wrote to Premier Giuseppe Conte to request autonomy for the southern region after applications from the northern regions of Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia Romagna.
    "We asked to be linked to the discussion regarding Veneto, Lombardy and Emilia a month ago," he said.
    "We did not receive a reply and today we will formalise the request for differentiated autonomy for Campania too according to our line: defence of national unity, parity of conditions for all Italian citizens, levels of services equal for all and penalties and rewards for all those administrators who show they are or are not able to administrate in a correct way".
    Critics say the request by the three northern regions could sound the death knell for national solidarity as well as creating second-class citizens.
