Sardinia chose Todde, unforgettable day says Conte

Sardinia chose Todde, unforgettable day says Conte

Right field can win elsewhere with reliable comrades-M5S head

ROME, 27 February 2024, 09:53

ANSA English Desk




Sardinia has chosen Alessandra Todde as new governor, the island's first woman chief, on an unforgettable day, ex premier and leftist populist 5-Star Movement (M5S) Giuseppe Conte said as the former M5S deputy president looked on course for an extremely slim victory over the centre right's Paolo Truzzu at the head of a 'broad field' alliance between the M5S and the centre-left Democratic Party (PD).
    "Sardinia has chosen our Alessandra Todde," said Conte at campaign headquarters with Todde holding a 3% lead with a handful of polling stations still to report in.
    "She is the first regional president of the M5s, the first woman to lead Sardinia.
    "It is an unforgettable day".
    Conte added that the 'broad field' alliance could be replicated if the M5S finds "reliable comrades" in another upcoming regional election, in Abruzzo on March 10.
    In that case the PD and the M5S and their small leftwing allies will be joined by two centrist parties, former premier and ex PD chief Matteo Renzi's Italia Viva) and former industry minister Carlo Calenda's Azione (Action), who both boycotted the alliance in Sardinia because it was led by a figure from the allegedly extremist M5S.
    The victory in Sardinia, Conte said, "is worth even more" because there was "Soru who with Azione went to fish for votes in the progressive camp", referring to tech magnate and local hero Renato Sour, a former PD governor, who teamed up with Calenda in Sardinia and collected 8.7% of the vote.
    Conte reiterated that what he called "the right field", rather than the broad field, could be victorious elsewhere.
    "We always work to build a solid project with other political and civic forces, with reliable fellow travellers," he told Italian TV.
    "We cannot make a commitment with the citizens if we have unreliable companions, because this would lead to ungovernability and we do not go to government to manage power but to bring about change".
