Sicily: Musumeci, ready to reapply – Sicily

Governor does not rule out councilor Razza’s return to the team

(ANSA) – PALERMO, 09 MAY – “In 2017 I was the synthesis of a center-right that was certainly not considered a winner. It was the first major victory against the national trend. Today I am not governing alone, we are a team. team that, with great difficulty, is trying to put the Region back on its feet, amidst so much rubble. I feel I don’t have to stop this action and I’m sure no one will want to favor divisions “. Thus the president of the Sicilian Region Nello Musumeci, who in an interview with the local edition of the newspaper “La Repubblica” announces the intention of wanting to reapply. “In the weekly talks that engage me with all the political forces – he adds – I warn that, in the end, the reasons for being together will prevail. Ultimately: I consider myself a loyal person and of my word. When I shake hands with an ally it is worth more of a contract. I trust, I demand respect “.
Answering a question about the duration of his interim as councilor for health, the Governor does not rule out a return to the government team of Ruggero Razza, who resigned after the investigation into the false data relating to the Covid emergency in Sicily. “I said publicly – explains Musumeci – that I had asked the lawyer Razza from the beginning, who was not the recipient of any personal measure, not to submit his resignation. He insisted because he believed, as a criminal lawyer and as an honest man, to first wanting to speak to the judicial authority without affecting the government. I respected that choice of his “.
“The work carried out in three years by the Department of Health – adds the Governor – is there for all to see and has been widely appreciated, even by the most loyal opponents.
On the legal matter, I immediately expressed two considerations: respect for the judiciary and the awareness that in Sicily we have never delayed decisions to contain the pandemic “. (ANSA).
