An idea takes hold: Draghi at the Quirinale and Colao premier
Mario Draghi at the Quirinale and Vittorio Colao at Palazzo Chigi. This is the hypothesis that we are working on, at least according to what the Press reports. The premier who would become president of the Republic and the current minister for the digital transition to take his place. “After all, net of some slowdown in the ministry on projects linked to the resources of the European Recovery Plan, Draghi showed not too long ago that he had faith in Colao by handing him the crucial delegation to aerospace at the end of August”, writes La Stampa.
Not only that: “Another fundamental lever for the supermanager from Brescia already in charge of the second most substantial chapter of the Pnrr after the ecological transition. Draghi is aware that the digitization of Italy is too important a challenge to be able to let it succumb to the shoulders of the parties , who, as soon as the President of the Republic is elected, will slide towards the furious electoral contest “. The perplexity is linked to the lack of political experience, but “his experience as a manager, about ten years in Vodafone, added to the solid quirinal support that Draghi would offer him, could however guarantee him some more tools in the management of a government which, is predictable enough, it will end up in pieces. On the other hand, Colao had already been touched by forecasts on the future of Palazzo Chigi when Giuseppe Conte was tenant “.
The hypothesis of Gentiloni’s return to Palazzo Chigi
The press also realizes that the center-left is pushing to recall the former premier of the Democratic Party Paolo Gentiloni, current Commissioner for Economic Affairs of Brussels. “These are scenarios that are all based on one premise. May Draghi go to Colle, overcoming the resistance of those who, starting from the Democratic Party, would like to continue to be Prime Minister until, at least, 2023”, concludes Ilario Lombardo.
Quirinale, Tajani: “Never thought about tables with the Democratic Party, I see Draghi well in the EU”
“It is not clear what the reproach is: we have never said that we are willing to open a table with the Democratic Party to negotiate on the Quirinale, Berlusconi has never had contact with Enrico Letta or other leaders not of the center-right to talk about candidacies for the Colle, never we thought we wanted to make anomalous alliances “: this is the clarification of the coordinator of Forza Italia, Antonio Tajani, who in an interview with Corriere della Sera replied to the criticisms of the allies. “We are in the center-right”, he assured, “we are for bipolarism, for the majority and we are an alternative to the left. Our only interest today is to work so that the country overcomes the pandemic and economic emergency”.
“It seems clear to me what Berlusconi means”, added Tajani, “it is good that Draghi plays a very important political role even after 2023, that he can also be the country’s reserve for institutional positions. Nobody thinks of a government of broad agreements. even after the next elections, our goal is a center-right government, naturally Atlanticist and pro-European, led by a center-right premier. Personally, I would see Draghi well as president of the European Commission, or of the European Council, so to speak.
