October 15 is now very close and chance reigns supreme. The mandatory nature of the swab for all workers, private and public, is becoming a potential political and social bomb. Sources in the majority speak of “strong irritation” on the part of the Prime Minister Mario Draghi for the circular of the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese which allows the Trieste dockers to have free tampons, thus going against a state law and against what the executive had said until a few hours ago.
Palazzo Chigi considers that of the Viminale a sign of potentially dangerous failure and, among other things, completely useless, given that the workers of the port of the capital of Friuli Venezia Giulia have already said that it is not enough and that they will continue to fight until total abolition of the provision introducing the Green Pass. The Democratic Party remains firm, with the Minister of Labor Andrea Orlando in the lead, in saying no to free tampons for all, but the surprise exit of Beppe Grillo has created chaos in the majority.
If all the 5 Star Movement were to agree with its founder, Giuseppe Conte in the lead, but also Luigi Di Maio, in theory there would be a majority in Parliament – M5S, Lega and Fratelli d’Italia – to make the swabs free for all workers not vaccinated against Covid. But, Dem sources explain, it would be a political bomb not only on the government but also on the hypothetical yellow-red coalition of the Center-Left and on the dialogue between pentastellati and the Democratic Party. All with the assurance, from Forza Italia and Dem sources, that Draghi absolutely does not intend to endorse other failures after the one on the Trieste harbor. The fact is that as day X approaches, the tension increases.
“There is concern for the 15th because it is a delicate transition but it is the same concern that we have had in recent months”, Orlando cuts short. “The Green Pass is a complex step but that we can tackle with social dialogue which – he adds – is not a luxury but an essential condition for a democratic presidency”. Speaking with deputies and senators, there is a palpable fear that from North to South there may be demonstrations, protests and problems of public order. But the premier, according to the rumors of the Palazzo, does not want any further failure.
