Draghi evaluates the dissolution of Forza Nuova: no of the League
The hypothesis of the dissolution of Forza Nuova by decree is on the table of the Draghi government: this is what emerges from sources close to the executive according to which Palazzo Chigi, in agreement with the Ministry of the Interior, has launched a real investigation to evaluate the to do.
The government, in fact, contacted jurists, constitutionalists, university professors and other law experts to ask them for a technical and legal opinion.
The Scelba law of 1952 allows the executive “in extraordinary cases of necessity and urgency” to act through a law decree if a movement uses “violence as a method of political struggle”.
The path, however, is far from simple. In fact, never before has a party been dissolved by a government decree. The only precedent is represented by the New Order, which was dissolved in 1973 by the Ministry of the Interior following a sentence. Judgment that, in the case of Forza Nuova, there is none.
For this reason, the premier moves with extreme caution, also and above all in consideration of the fact that, within the majority forces that support the government, the opinions are not unanimous.
If the Pd and M5S, in fact, are in favor of the dissolution of the far-right party, the same cannot be said of Forza Italia and Lega, which have already expressed their opposition to the motion presented by the Democratic Party, and supported by Movimento 5 Stelle and Leu , which calls for the dissolution of Forza Nuova and of “all political movements of clear neo-fascist inspiration”.
In addition to the political obstacle, then, there is also the concern of the Interior Ministry. The fear, in fact, is that the eventual dissolution of the far-right party could fuel even more street protests.
