Justice reform will not put the government at risk. A sounding of parliamentary sources of the 5 Star Movement emerges, yes, a widespread malpancismo on the points concerning the limitation, but also the awareness that there are no conditions to launch ‘either or’. On the other hand, also the Minister of Youth Policies, Fabiana Dadone, has adjusted her aim with respect to the statements in which she explicitly spoke of the resignation of the M5s ministers from the government, if the square in the majority was not found. “I’ve been misunderstood, it’s not my style to threaten anything”. The point is that the authorization to place confidence in the reform, requested and obtained by Prime Minister Draghi at the Council of Ministers, has turned the negotiating table upside down, putting the elected Five Stars in difficulty. Who continue, in the overwhelming majority to say they are opposed to the new statute of limitations, but among which there are few who would come to the extreme ratio of disheartening the government. “There are no barricades under construction”, explains a well-informed M5s parliamentary source: “There are ten, perhaps 15 elected officials who would not vote for confidence. No more”.
Draghi puts the trust and the M5s takes a half step back on justice
To bring the Five Stars back to milder advice would have been Draghi’s move on trust, then. But not only. The position of the Democratic Party also weighed, still explain Five Star parliamentary sources. “The reform of the justice system is essential to be able to finalize all the European funds of the PNRR well”, says the secretary of the Pd Enrico Letta: “We have done the necessary work in these hours, and we will continue it in the next few hours and days. , to find the necessary adjustments to reach an agreement as wide as possible. After that the government I believe will put the trust because it is important that this measure reaches the approval of the Chamber before the summer break. fundamental because we must give Europe, which has given us a lot of money, the demonstration that we are serious in making reforms. If we did not carry out a reform of Justice, I believe it would be a lack of absolute seriousness. We must commit ourselves in this direction. “. In any case, Letta appears calm, says that “the government does not creak” and stresses that “in the face of complicated steps” such as that of the justice reform, “it is natural for there to be discussions”. The Democratic Party therefore applauds a “courageous and innovative” reform that “tackles long unresolved issues”, says the group leader in the House. We do not hide, of course, that on the issue of non-passability “an intervention is needed”, but from here to evoke mass resignations: “I believe that in this phase we need calm but also the awareness that we are at an epochal juncture “.
The third and, perhaps, decisive element that cooled the hearts of the Five Stars was that of the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, who in a letter sent to the vice president of the CSM, David Ermini, invited them to slow down and rethink the process of the opinion on the reform, whose arrival at the plenum of the CSM was scheduled for next week. For the Head of State, the Council must decide on the overall structure of the Cartabia reform and not just on the non-passability. Despite this, parliamentary sources of the Democratic Party predict, the discontent and the fibrillation in the majority will not end with the vote on the reform: the thesis is that at the base of the tough stances of the Five Stars – but also of the Lega and Italia Viva – there are the upcoming autumn elections in the municipalities. It would not be explained otherwise why “after having been silent in the Council of Ministers on the authorization to raise the question of trust” on the reform of the justice system, “the Movement never comes to talk about the possibility of resignation”.
