FdI says Bologna Festa dell'Unità must be scrapped

Post-fascist party says post-Communist fest breaks rules

(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 18 - The post-Fascist Brothers of Italy (FdI) party on Thursday called for next week's national post-Communist Festa dell'Unità festival of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) to be scrapped because it is in alleged breach of campaigning norms for the September 25 general election.
    "It's a violation of the rules," said FdI MP Galeazzo Bignami.
    "A public space is being given to a party (the PD) without upholding the rules of the election campaign.
    "In Bologna the rules are valid for all, but they are ever less valid for the PD".
    The FdI is poised to lead a right/centre-right coalition to victory on September 25 when its leader Giorgia Meloni is expected to become Italy's first post-Fascist and first woman premier. (ANSA).
