Elections in Corigliano Rossano, Mascaro supports the centre-right


By John

The administrative elections of Corigliano Rossanothe third largest city in Calabria, appear on the political horizon with unprecedented aggregations of parties, compared to the national panorama, or as theformer mayor of Rossano, Stefano Mascaro, «anomalous». In fact, in addition to the Action party, which has decided to support the center-right coalition with the mayoral candidate Pasqualina Strafacethe party of I joined the same aggregationItaly Vivarepresented in the city by Nicola Candiano, a long-time politician, coming from the Popular Party and, indeed, by Mascaro, also coming from the same political force, who many considered as a candidate in support of Forza Italia, having been among the supporters, in unsuspecting times, of the candidacy of Pasqualina Straface, as the accredited candidate to oppose the mayor Flavio Stasi.
And Mascaro, who we spoke to by telephone, has ruled out his candidacy in the administrative elections in June. He points out that in the meantime, as a center exponent, he has made a commitment to Matteo Renzi, above all to make a contribution for the European elections, to try to send the best forces to the European Parliament. He specifies, therefore, “that since the Party bodies have not yet been formed, the provisional nomination of coordinator has been assigned to Nicola Candiano”.
Regarding joining the centre-right, the last mayor of the former municipality of Rossano, highlights that «two poles have been formed in the city and since there is no third center pole, Italia Viva has joined the more natural centre-right one, considering that in the other pole there are still unclear situations, even if we point this out, we are moving towards elections that are outside of any pattern and with anomalous aggregations. An anomaly – he explained – which created Stasi in the elections by calling within it the entire political formation of Forza Italia with the name of Co-Ro Domani and exponents of the Democratic Party, splitting those political forces, while today the opposite is happening with the compact center-right and divided left.”
