Beppe Sala, mayor of Milan, will support and help all the current councilors of his municipality who decide to run in the European elections on June 9. “I also take it – he said Thursday – as a sign of appreciation from the parties for the quality of the people who work with me.” He added, however, that “when the lists are made official, if someone comes forward, I will have to think about a successor”, even if he will not openly ask for his resignation. “But it is clear – he clarified – that I cannot risk, for Milan, leaving an empty role, and I do not want to take on ‘interims’ (assuming delegations, editor’s note), because that wouldn’t be serious, the moment is too complex.”

In view of the European elections, among the 12 councilors on the council, the candidacies of Pierfrancesco Maran (Democratic Party) and Alessia Cappello (United States of Europe list) appear almost certain for the moment. The “boxes” of housing and economic development services would therefore remain uncovered, with delegations which also concern the neighborhood plan and the public works plan (for Maran) and work, fashion and design (for Cappello). Further nominations from the board team are unlikely.

Majorino’s precedent

On the municipal council side, however, several candidates could arrive for the European elections. We are talking, for example, about Carmine Pacente (Action) and Diana De Marchi (Democratic Party). In the previous European elections, those of 2019, during the first municipal council of Sala, the only councilor candidate was Pierfrancesco Majorino (Pd), who once elected was replaced on the council by Gabriele Rabaiotti in the social policies department.
