Silvio Berlusconi – Giorgia Meloni – Matteo Salvini (Lapresse)
Lega, pressing on Meloni. “Split M5s? If cdx steering F enters”
The Draghi government has to deal with the now imminent split of the M5, destined to upset the current balance of the majority. With the League that would in fact become the first party. For this Salvini and his followers – read the press – dream of bringing the entire center-right to the government. Matteo Salvini looks at the unraveling of the M5s with one eye turned to Giorgia Meloni. The breaking of the grillino front could be an extraordinary help for the League, especially if the Brothers of Italy were co-opted in the majority that supports the government of Mario Draghi in place of what will remain of the 5 Stars in the event of a split. “If Meloni accepted, a center-right government would be born,” explains Deputy Minister for Transport Alessandro Morelli.
Then there is also – continues the Press – the Quirinale match, which Salvini thinks he can play as a protagonist thanks to the feud between Beppe Grillo and Giuseppe Conte. The split of the 5 Stars in many uncontrollable tribes would be a serious problem for the Democratic Party, because it would not find any solid guarantee of convergence on the names. And at that point the compact center-right could become the director of balance. Not only that: the entry of Fdi would also have a disruptive effect on the left bank of the coalition, because it would force the Democratic Party, Leu and Italia Viva to reflect on staying in a government totally biased to the right.
