Before Giuseppe Conte then Matteo Salvini. They are the two leaders who, within a few hours of each other, opened thehypothesis Mario Draghi at the Quirinale, both taking care, however, to reassure their respective troops that this step does not mean early voting at all. A sort of excusatio non petita that immediately stirred especially the Five stars. How, on the other hand, was more than predictable. If only because it is the first party in Parliament, which has the most to lose in terms of the number of elected representatives with the next elections. Thanks to the cut in the number of parliamentarians wanted by the M5s, but also the busillis still standing on the derogation from the second term.
Precisely considering these non-secondary aspects, the ratio of Conte’s flight forward escapes even more. With respect to which, in a very short return of post, he expressed himself as well Luigi di Maio. The foreign minister had his say in an interview with The print. A counterpoint that sounds like this: “For sure Draghi has all our support for the work he is doing. And if you allow it, I have no intention of entering into the debate on the toto-Quirinale, which can only have the result of burning the best names “. Words almost like a shadow leader, certainly thoughtful statements by those who were leaders of the Movement and know its deepest soul well.
Nothing to be surprised about, in short. If anything, Conte’s strategy is surprising. What calculations are at the basis of this externalization of yours in Lucia Annunziata’s living room? Admitting that, in the end, an agreement was to be found between the political forces on Draghi, in fact, Conte would find himself dancing on the Titanic until the end, unable to guarantee the resistance and above all the fidelity of the groups. On the other hand, the people’s advocate still does not even have the strength to govern the group leaders. With the president of deputies Davide Crippa, which the former prime minister wanted to replace without waiting for the expiry of his mandate in December, Conte lost the first battle. And on the head of the group in the Senate, history is still to be written. The vote will take place tomorrow, but paradoxically, the opening line on Draghi risks weighing on the consultation, giving the senator a few more chances Maria Domenica Castellone and undermining the reconfirmation of the contianissimo Ettore Licheri.
“But does Conte really believe that his reassurances on the legislature that will go ahead are enough to eventually convince all parliamentarians to vote for Draghi in the secret of the ballot box?” Then he added: “Why should we trust words while facts, starting with the puzzle of the two terms, are not yet on the horizon?”. Among the pentastellate ranks there are also those who summarize this latest move by the M5s president as “the result of inexperience. In fact, it is one thing to lead a government, another is to lead a party. A fortiori a movement that has, among other things, completely unaccustomed to having a leader. I want to hope that it is only naivety and not the presumption of wanting to impose his verb in a few months. In fact, if the president believes he is transforming a pack of loose dogs into a faithful and compact troop, he is only naive ”.
In the light of these considerations collected by our newspaper, the question is more than ever necessary: what reasons have pushed the people’s advocate to this flight forward? It would be reductive to think that there are only reasons of politically correctness and therefore Conte’s intention to shake off the narrative according to which relations between him and Draghi are not idyllic.
It may not be that the former prime minister suffers too much from the influence of Goffredo Bettini? The relationship between the two is now consolidated and undoubtedly the leader of the left dem manages to be heard more by Conte than in the Democratic Party of the new course in Lettiano.
It is well known that Bettini immediately expressed himself for Draghi al Colle, contrary to Letta thought. But the knot here is another and that is how much would benefit the M5s from such a hypothesis. Already now with the former president of the ECB at the helm of Palazzo Chigi – and the latest elections are proof of this – the Movement, together with the Lega, is the party that suffers most in the cage of the majority of national unity. If we were still aiming for the end of the legislature, would the M5s withstand the impact of another government, ruled by the same majority?
One of the hypotheses circulating would be that of Daniele Franco at the head of the executive. The current Minister of Economy, at least at the time of Count One, when he held the position of accountant general of the State at the Mef, was among other things disliked by most of the pentastellates. Of course, perhaps it would be a less bitter bite to digest than that of a dem at Palazzo Chigi. This means that for the grillini it would be a setback (it is thanks to the M5s that the Nazarene with Count two is back in the control room), as well as the confirmation of a Movement that has now become only an appendix of the Democratic party.
In short, summing up, perhaps it was better for the pentastellato leader not to pronounce on the toto-Quirinale and wait a little longer. It can always be assumed that Conte’s intention was that of remove the bugbear of an wearing Ursula majority even after 2023. There is, among other things, that the former prime minister aspires to return to Palazzo Chigi. The short circuit, if anything, is that in order to hinder a future scenario of this type, the Apulian lawyer accepts the risk of a Draghi majority without Draghi’s charisma.
