Orlando himself now makes it known in a note that he appreciates Franco Miceli.
“I know him well for having been a councilor chosen by me in a council – declares the current mayor – We now need to define a follow-up program to the many achievements and potentials that for years have constituted the heritage achieved by our city.
The Palermitans and the Palermitans – adds Orlando – have the right to be able to choose, in addition to the candidate for mayor, lists with strong personalities.
All these conditions can and must be fulfilled so that Palermo, also with national financial interventions as has already happened for other large Italian cities, resume forcefully the path traced in the last ten years, thus continuing its path of innovation and the future in strengthening the municipal administration and in the role it has conquered in the international dimension ».

Once the challenge has been accepted, Miceli will have to confront the other candidates for mayor, for a city where there are so many issues to face.
«Anyone who claims to have all the solutions in his pocket knows he is lying and acts according to old agreements of power.
Palermo needs to look to its future – continues Miceli – He needs to open a new phase in his life.
Certainly it needs vision, but above all concrete programs.
Skills that become energies put into a system to eliminate those mechanisms, also worn out, which find fertile ground in inefficiencies and unproductivity.
Palermo needs to grow to be one of the capital cities of Southern Europe, hinge and junction between the continentsat the forefront of the battle for the construction of a productive, inclusive and dense Mediterranean area of ​​cultural values ​​».

The 5-star Movement also expresses satisfaction, which is decided, together with the Democratic Party and the civic forces, to support Miceli.
It is the result of a great team work that makes me very satisfied – says the undersecretary for infrastructures of the Draghi government Giancarlo Cancelleri – A high professional profile that can best represent the vision of the city that the whole coalition has set itself.
There is a need for fresh air, forward-looking ideas and projects – concludes Cancelleri – The Movement is the protagonist of this beautiful adventure for the good of the city.
Palermo gives way to important challenges ».
The young democrats from Palermo had turned up their noses on Miceli’s possible candidacy.
