Rome needs 'civic jerk,' commissioner Tronca says

Ex Milan prefect wants to 'break the spiral of negativity'

Rome needs 'civic jerk,' commissioner Tronca says

Rome, January 11 - Rome needs to be given "a civic jerk", extraordinary commissioner and former Milan prefect Francesco Paolo Tronca said on Monday. "The real challenge is to overcome resignation, to restore faith in the institutions, to rediscover a sense of belonging," Tronca said in an interview with Milan daily Corriere della Sera. "At the start of the New Year, with the Jubilee underway, it is necessary to begin a new chapter and break the spiral of negativity," he continued. Tronca was appointed to steer the capital to fresh elections following the ouster of mayor Ignazio Marino of the Democratic Party (PD) ostensibly over an expenses scandal last November. The city is also reeling from a major probe into alleged criminal infiltration into city council contracts. Tronca said his guiding principles are legality and solidarity and that his aim for 2016 is to restore due decorum in the city. The commissioner's words found favour with Cardinal Agostino Vallini, Vicar General of Rome. "I perfectly agree," Vallini said in a statement. "The Jubilee is exactly the right time to relaunch the city, not just on the level of image but also in the substance of conduct, from the institutions to citizens, without exception," he said. "There is an 'us' to be rediscovered in the social life of the city, a cohesion that has disintegrated over the years. It is necessary to abandon the vicious circle of inertia, illegality, political exploitation and fear, closures and divisions," Vallini added. Defence undersecretary Domenico Rossi was also in agreement. "It is necessary to restore Rome's leadership in legality, transparency and solidarity," Rossi said.
