Leader of the Italian League party Matteo Salvini accused the head of the European Commission (EC) Ursula von der Leyen in threats and censorship. He said this on Friday, commenting on her statement that if after the elections in Italy “the situation is difficult, there are tools, as in the cases with Poland and Hungary.”
“This is a real unworthy threat, interference. This lady represents all Europeans, we pay her salary, and she allows herself such threats. The League parliamentary group will present a resolution on censorship. Italians will vote on Sunday, not bureaucrats in Brussels, I would think about the high cost of energy if I were them, ”ANSA quoted him as saying.
