Giorgia Meloni is the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. In the following video, Ms. Meloni speaks out about President Sergio Mattarella’s recent veto of the proposed new government, based on his disapproval of the anti-Euro policies of the designated economy minister, Paolo Savona.

Video transcript:

00:00   It is said that the president of the republic, Sergio Mattarella has vetoed the nomination of
00:05   Paolo Savona as minister of economy. If the news were confirmed,
00:09   it would be incredible, because the truth is
00:12   that there is no rule in the Italian Constitution that allows the president of the republic
00:15   to refuse to nominate a minister solely because he doesn’t share his ideas.
00:20   And if this news were confirmed, it would be dramatically evident
00:25   that President Mattarella is too much influenced by the interests of foreign nations.
00:30   Therefore, the Brothers of Italy, in the case where this veto has impeded
00:35   the formation of a new government, will call on the Italian Parliament to bring charges
00:42   of high treason against the president of the republic according to Article 90 of the Constitution
00:45   because [of] people who act in the interests of foreign nations,
00:50   not of the Italian [people], we have already seen far too much.

One thought on “Giorgia Meloni Calls for Charges of High Treason Against the President of the Republic

  1. Treason it certainly may be but this class are not answerable or accountable and so such calls will, all to sadly, be nothing more than a hoped for wish.

    Even President Trump cannot progress the accounting of Hillary etc (yet?).
