Mario Draghi Giuseppe Conte
On the reform of the criminal process “in a few days we will understand if our requests have been accepted or not. It is clear that a prospect of confidence in the reform without some changes would be difficult for us”, these are the words spoken by the political leader in pectore of the M5S Giuseppe Conte, to the M5S deputies. Syllables made to filterAdnkronos and which confirm the quotes issued on the Everyday occurrence Sunday morning but promptly denied by the former prime minister. Maneuverability is reduced, “there is limited room for maneuver”, says Conte to his team, who however assures: “I am using them all and I am doing my best”.
The direct line with Prime Minister Draghi is allowing a series of proposals to revisit the “basic system” voted unanimously in the CDM. The pentastellato leader knows that breaking up now would not bring anything good to the 5 Stars. “I am asking – he continues – a series of interventions aware that the majority is very large and expresses very different sensitivities. But we have drawn lines and fixed points, together with a technical work team, starting from the crimes of mafia, terrorism and corruption “. In fact, this would be the point of failure to reach an agreement. The “technical team” includes the 4 ministers who sit next to Draghi: Luigi Di Maio, Stefano Patuanelli, Federico D’Inca and Fabiana Dadone. But the former Minister of Justice Alfonso Bonafede is also part of the circle (very critical of his colleagues for the green light in the CDM for the Cartabia reform).
However, Conte is careful to let people know that he is there a “constructive confrontation with Draghi” is underway, to whom he “clarified that the proposal as originally formulated poses very serious problems to the Movement.” So serious that it could compromise the government’s stability given the white semester practically already active (it starts on August 3 but it is as if it were already in force given the minimum time that would remain for the head of state to dissolve the Chambers and call new elections). The lawyer’s goal is twofold: to improve the reform of the justice system and keep together the pentastellates still too divided and looking for guidance. “When I spoke of a strong leadership – Conte underlines – was not for a personal interest but for the good of the movement. There is a need for clear and strong leadership to speak with the government and obtain results “, and who knows if by saving the identity flag of justice Conte will be able to definitively transform the” grillini “into” contini “.
