Five Star Movement

Following the consultation carried out on the Rousseau platform for the selection of the candidates to the European elections – the 5 Star Movement has chosen five women as leaders. They are: Maria Angela Danzì, general secretary and general manager of the municipalities of Genoa and Novara and of the province of Varese, candidate for the north-west college; Sabrina Pignedoli, investigative journalist specialized on ‘Ndrangheta in the territory of Reggio Emilia, candidate for the north-east; Daniela Rondinelli, member of the Cabinet of the European Economic and Social Committee, candidate for the center; Chiara Maria Gemma, associate professor in Special Teaching and Pedagogy at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro”, for the south; Alessandra Todde, managing director of Olidata, candidate for the islands.

Therefore, Di Maio’s “civic” electoral campaign approach prevailed – “excellence from science, university, entrepreneurship”. Casaleggio’s approach was more attentive to “themes”, starting from digital democracy.

Outgoing MEPs run for the second term in Brussels: Eleonora Evi, Tiziana Beghin, Marco Zullo, Dario Tamburrano, Laura Agea, Fabio Massimo Castaldo, Piernicola Pedicini, Laura Ferrara, Isabella Adinolfi, Rosa D’Amato and Ignazio Corrao. Among the leading figures of the Movement, who have also accepted to run for the EP, the former mayor of Livorno, Filippo Nogarin, and former Mediaset journalist Dino Giarrusso.

M5S have looked to build an alliance with other parties across Europe that tries to break down the traditional left-right political spectrum.  However of the 4 parties that have signed up to their new “post-ideological “ group, few look like they will return any MEPs. Croatia’s  Zivi Zid’s could return 2 MEPs and the Polish Kukiz 15 could win 4 seats but the Finnish Liike Nyt and Greek Akkel are not forecast to win any seats. They would need at least 25 MEPs from 7 Member states to form a new political group in the EP. Relations with President Macron and LREM  have become extremely strained following Di Maio’s support and meeting with the French gilets jaunes.

On 31 December, MEP Marco Valli and Giulia Moi were expelled from the M5S, while David Borrelli, in November, joined “Italia in Comune”: the new movement founded by the mayor of Parma and former 5-Star Movement, Pizzarotti.
