Count Grillo Di Maio Lapresse
“Di Maio won”. He has no doubts Paolo Becchi, former ideologist of the 5 Star Movement interviewed by Affaritaliani.it after the peace between Giuseppe Conte and Beppe Grillo. “The Foreign Minister is the person who tried in every way to fix the pieces that were disintegrating. It is true that there was the commission of the seven wise men, of which he was a part, but Di Maio is the one who he spent more, also because he had more to lose, for this arranged marriage to take place. A marriage of interests between Conte and Grillo, there is no love at all. Di Maio’s political and mediation skills have led to save what can be saved “.
Ok Di Maio, but in fact Conte took over the Movement by recovering all souls, am I wrong? “It will be necessary to see in the statute how the role of the guarantor changes, my impression is that he will not be touched and Grillo will be able to continue to say what he wants as he has done so far. Di Maio won and between the other two contenders we will understand it in the coming months” , explains Becchi.
“The former prime minister’s program is as clear as it is unattainable. He plans to embarrass Draghi and get to the general elections next year. Conte must capitalize as soon as possible the consensus, which does not last forever, which derives from governments Conte I and II. He must exploit the moment and cannot wait until 2023 “.
Well, the best and easiest way would be Draghi al Quirinale … “In fact, what is happening brings Draghi back to the center of attention for the match of the President of the Republic. Electing the premier at the Quirinale would remove the obstacle to go to the polls without having to bring down the government. In this scenario, it must be said clearly, Salvini is certainly the one to gain, who has every interest in going to the early elections in 2022. Now the leader of the League defends the government, he is doing good but knows that with Conte, the bad guy, he has the same interest and the same goal and he will not be able to ignore them “.
But why does Conte want the vote next year if all the polls damage the clearly favored Center-right? “He knows perfectly well that he will no longer have 33% but more or less 10%, but if you go to the vote he enters Parliament, where he has never been, leading a party that will be a rib of the left. Conte knows perfectly well that he does not he will have more votes to govern, but within a center-left coalition he can get a good result. But he can’t wait until 2023 “, argues Becchi.
Will the ex like Di Battista and Morra fall into the 5 Stars? “When Conte were to announce the exit of the M5S from the Draghi executive they would return immediately. But I don’t think it will happen during President Mattarella’s white semester, I think instead that Conte will work alongside Draghi focusing on issues such as the prescription and the defense of the citizenship income. He will put a spoke in the wheel for the premier. And all this will inevitably create a big problem for the Democratic Party. Letta, an ally of the 5 Stars, will have to manage an extremist person who wants to break everything. The Democratic Party will be in great difficulty in the next months and Salvini will benefit from it “, concludes Becchi.
