Three MPs switch from Forza Italia to Salvini's League

Lawmakers complain of 'openings' towards govt

(ANSA) - ROME, 19 NOV - Three Lower House MPs, Federica Zanella, Maurizio Carrara and former undersecretary Laura Ravetto, said Thursday that they have left Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia (FI) to join Matteo Salvini's right-wing League party.
    There is tension within the centre-right opposition over the possibility that FI may support some of the government's measures to tackle the emergency linked to COVID-19.
    In a statement, the three lawmakers said they had made the switch due to "unease at the increasing openings towards the government and flirtation with the (centre-left) Democratic Party".
    They also said that they thought FI has lost its "thrust".
