Just eight months after the last regional elections, the Aosta Valley ends up again mired in a political crisis. A ‘wobble’ is the majority (21 votes against 14 of the opposition) formed by some autonomist forces (Union valdotaine, Alliance valdotaine, Edelweiss, Vda Unie) and by the Progressive Civic Project, which also includes the Democratic Party.
The situation worsened following the resignation of the councilor for the environment, transport and sustainable mobility, Chiara Minelli (Civic Network), who in the classroom accused her colleagues of “hostility” and “obstruction” in the face of important dossiers such as the electrification of the Aosta-Ivrea railway line (included in the works to be financed with the Pnrr), the future of the airport, landfills. Together with her, Erika Guichardaz (Pd) also resigned from the presidency of the committee.
The government verification, invoked by the PCP, failed to start even after a meeting between the parties, in which the autonomist forces chose the path of silence, thus putting in difficulty the President of the Region, Erik Lavevaz, who has repeatedly asked to start the discussion and to reopen the dialogue. “As a group – Paolo Cretier (Pd) said in the classroom – we continue to support the majority but a confrontation is necessary. We must clear up misunderstandings”.
