Sanremo. Continue the rise of Brothers of Italywhich according to recent surveys carried out by SWG would have reached the 25.8 percent of consents. To comment on the data, in the studies of Riviera24.itis the regional councilor Gianni Berrino (FdI), candidate for the Ligurian single-member college for the Senate. «It makes such a strong figure in the polls a bit dizzying – declares Berrino – But I always remember that the poll data must be confirmed by the voters, who are the ones who then decide the fate of the parties and candidates. So we will have the truly correct and precise data only on September 26th ».

“In Liguria – adds the FdI candidate – A survey that came out last week gave us 21.6 percent, so here too a very high figure for our party, but the same is always true: the survey does not take into account of that 40 percent of voters who have not yet decided whether to go to vote and for whom and, above all, do not take into account theturnout which will be the determining factor in these elections. By voting only one day and on Sunday there is a risk that the turnout will not be very high. We, on the other hand, hope that many will go to vote: after five years the Italians have the opportunity to return to vote and choose the destiny of the nation for the next five. Of course, the fact of being so above the other parties at this moment gives a certain euphoria, but also a certain responsibility: first of all that of not mounting your head and believing that you have already won which is the risk you run when the polls are so positive and it is precisely for this reason that we continue to beat the territory inch by inch, minute by minute, to convince the voters to go and vote and do it for the Brothers of Italy ».

In addition to the leader of the League Matteo Salvini, expected in Ventimiglia, will we see Giorgia Meloni in the province of Imperia? “No – replies Berrino -. Giorgia Meloni has decided, given that the electoral campaign is very short, to make a day for the regional capital. He will come to Genoa on September 14, but he is well aware of the problems of the whole of Liguria, including the west. Recently in the program “Porta a Porta” you spoke of Ventimiglia and migrants, especially those rejected by France and therefore of Italy’s isolation in the management of migrants by Europe ».

Sanctions on Russia and price increases. “Meloni proposed, on returning to Parliament, even before the elections, to meet everyone and find a solution earlier, also to prevent this issue from becoming a dispute in the electoral campaign, given that families are distributed across the board, from north to south. and from right to left, and they all suffer the same, regardless of political affiliation – declares Berrino -. It is clear that if an agreement is not reached before the vote, it will be one of the first things to do with the new government because families on the one hand and companies on the other, which are the ones that give families work, are at great risk. I heard a union leader who thought that, only in October, we could lose one million jobs for the energy crisis: these are data that cannot even be thought of after two years of covid and of great effort by companies ».

The priorities for the Ponente for FdI. “The first that leaps to everyone’s eyes is the infrastructural poverty of our western Liguria because there is no doubt that from Savona to Ventimiglia we suffer from a very high infrastructural deficit, if we think that we still have over thirty kilometers of single track on the railway, which is a ‘work absolutely to be unlocked – declares the FdI candidate – The commissioner has also already been appointed, but it is necessary to verify that the work goes on as it is essential for passengers but also for goods. And being fundamental also for freight, it is consequently also for the motorway: being able to increase the number of slots reserved for freight trains, from Ventimiglia to Genoa or Savona, we can free part of those 18 thousand trucks that travel the our Autostrada dei Fiori clogging it, so if only 20-30% of goods could be transferred by rail we would have a much freer motorway ».

It’s still. “Then there is the problem of Ventimiglia station which continues to be powered at 1500 volts despite the fact that in the last three years we have made every attempt to change the voltage, become multi-voltage, to allow Italian trains to regularly enter the station in Ventimiglia – continues Berrino -. Then, of course, the missing link with Piedmont since the Colle di Tenda is still standing and for a few more years we will be without tunnels ». Then there is the age-old question of the Armo Cantarana and that of the Albenga-Carcare-Predosa motorway to face. “Of course, a lot of attention is also paid to the Ponente, even if the work is shifted more to the Genoese, it is the end of the works on the” third pass “which would bring the Riviera di Ponente very close to Milan and the Po valley and would be very important for the tourist but also commercial economy of this area of ​​Liguria ».
