Rome, February 19 - Roberto Maroni, secretary of
the regionalist Northern League, on Tuesday said the party's
election alliance with the People of Freedom (PdL) party of
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi was solid even as he acknowledged
grassroots discontent.
''The league governs together with the PdL in three regions
and 500 local municipalities in the North,'' Maroni told an ANSA
forum ahead of general elections on February 24 and 25.
''I can understand the complaints coming from the base, but
if the PdL has leprosy and accords are no longer possible the
consequence would be to topple all the administrations. Since
this cannot be the case, we have renegotiated an agreement based
on the macro-region and (the commitment to leaving) 75% of taxes
in the North,'' he continued.
''The alliance exists on the basis of this written
agreement and on this basis it is solid and can continue,'' he
concluded.
The PdL and Northern League were allies in the last
Berlusconi government but parted company when technocrat Mario
Monti took over at the height of the euro crisis, with
Berlusconi joining a right-left coalition backing the
ex-European commissioner which the League opposed.
In January Berlusconi announced a new deal as part of the
centre right's bid to return to power following Monti's 15-month
government, which fell when Berlusconi pulled out of the
coalition.
