My candidacy in the PD hindered by local frontrunners

The article discusses the former mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando, being asked to run for the upcoming European elections by Bonelli and Fratoianni, but being prevented from doing so by veto from local party leaders of the Democratic Party. Orlando, who previously served as a MEP for the Green Party, wants to ensure that the changes made in Palermo during his tenure are represented in Europe and not excluded by a bureaucratic and right-wing nationalist alliance. He emphasizes his Christian Democratic roots and willingness to engage in dialogue, despite being labeled as “Mister Rieccolo” by a journalist. Orlando, at 76 years old, believes he still has much to offer and learn from his experiences.
