The results of the 2022 political elections definitely give us an Italy, a Tuscany and a province of Pisa on the right, without dashes, but out of place, so to speak, the figure of Pisa city
In the shadow of the Leaning Tower there was a different “suffrage” for both the center right and the center left.
The coalition PD-VerdiSinistra- + Europe-Civic Commitment the coalition collects a 41.50% Brothers of Italy-Lega-Forza Italia-Noi Moderati 31.97 (with internal balances completely compared to the administrative ones of 2018).
A difference of nearly 10 points with a PD at 28% and the VerdiSinistra alliance at 8.43%.
There is the classic, however, that already in 2018 led to the ballot and the victory of the center right by crowning Michele Conti mayor of Pisa.
Contestable if (and we know that doubts have never made history) the center left and the other forces that currently sit in the opposition in the City Council will be able to find a synthesis and present themselves together.
Some possible scenarios: PD-VerdiSinistra- + Europe-M5S together would reach 53.07% in the first round, if then also Action-Italia Viva were to queue with their 8.11% there would be no match at all.
But now the PD will have to deal with the defeat suffered and what will be the results of a congress that promises to be on fire? What are the local repercussions, Pisa in particular?
In addition, the center-left and the left have, for decades now, the Tafazzian syndrome of programmatic division, that is to say that they always talk about programs first on which to confront and invariably on which to divide.
The famous cross vetoes that prevent the winning coalitions for the center and the left.
I have not mentioned the Popular Union, in Pisa formed by the Communist Refoundation, A City in the Municipality and Power to the People plus other acronyms that do not exceed 3.31%. Either for a too recent birth, either for the presence of a name that certainly did not favor them (De Magistris), or for a transfer of votes towards VerdiSinistra.
The reconfirmation of Michele Conti as mayor of Pisa, just under an administrative year from (probably in May-June 2023) is not at all obvious.
The unknown factor is not whether the center-left, given the results of this electoral round, is able to win, but whether it is able to aggregate, to choose a candidate, as I pointed out live on Punto Radio, who does not come from the academic chair. but from real society. This is not taken for granted at all.
On the front of the center, today the exponent of the Brothers of Italy, Diego Petrucci (the one who convinced his coalition to the accounts candidate for mayor) said clearly: “balances in the center right being completely revised, even on the way to communicate from here to the administrative. “
A center-right who, however, always knows how to fight skillfully to achieve his goal, to stay united to win, unlike the center left who struggles to stay divided in order to lose.
