However, the speaker of the chamber Mr. Roberto Fico wasn't very impressed by Mr. Muro's grand gesture, he said 

 MP Di Muro, I understand you but it's not appropriate to use an intervention for this purpose.

She's close to me personally, and politically, and she's been with me throughout my political career.
