Rome, March 17, 2017: A new party will launch in northern Italy aimed at protecting “the poorest of the poor” and guaranteeing every citizen a house, job, free healthcare and pension.

The “innovative” party, to be called the Fourth Popular Pole, will be formed in Calderara di Reno in Bologna province on Saturday by several associations, independent trade unions and civil society organisations, according to its future leader Antonino Magistro.

The Fourth Popular Pole will aim to represent voters alienated from Italy’s mainstream parties including the ruling centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and also from the Internet-based populist ‘grassroots’ Five Star movement, Magistro said.

“We represent true innovation in Italian politics in that we are based on the direct participation of citizens,” he stated.

“The Five-Star movement has shown itself to be an empty vessel that appears democratic but in reality is run by just four people,” Magistro said.

“And we have all seen what the PD has become,” he said, referring to a recent schism in the party by leftists disillusioned with the more centrist politics of former premier Matteo Renzi. (IANS)

New Delhi, July 27, 2017: The government on Thursday clarified that the suggestions received on issues related to NRI marriages are not final recommendations but part of the review process.

A statement issued by the Women and Child Development Ministry said that an expert committee has been set up the External Affairs Ministry to look into the issues and difficulties faced by Indian nationals married to overseas nationals of Indian origin and suggest amendments in existing policies.

Noting that the committee is taking into account suggestions from a variety of stakeholders including individuals, civil society organisations, and institutions on the subject, it said: “Any news reports mentioning the suggestions as formal and final recommendations are completely misleading and incorrect.”
