An empty chair in the center of the Montecitorio hemicycle, to symbolize the absence of a chair available for Ursula von der Leyen at the meeting with the Turkish president Erdogan. And this is the way chosen by the democratic party in the Chamber of the Chamber to testify its contrariet towards what, according to Beatrice Lorenzin, represents an offense to all women and to the European Union because to offend von der Leyen means to offend the European Union and what it represents on the issue of human rights and women. What happened in Turkey on Wednesday also has consequences in Italy. A debate has opened on the case at Montecitorio. After what happened yesterday in Turkey, the government should tell Parliament if it intends to interrupt the negotiations for Turkey’s entry into the European Union, said Augusta Montaruli of the Brothers of Italy in the Aula.
Unanimous condemnation of Erdogan’s gesture and solidarity towards the president of the EU Commission by representatives of parliamentary groups. But harsh criticism also to the president of the EU Council Charles Michel, accused of not having been able to react promptly to the situation.
