The Minister of Economy Franco he will report Wednesday in the Chamber on the Monte dei Paschi di Siena-Unicredit issue but in the meantime the parties continue to be agitated, even if there is the utmost confidence that it is the Prime Minister Draghi himself who will find a solution. It is the hope, for example, of the Democratic Party that does not hide its concern for the ‘MPS case’. And Forza Italia also says it with Minister Gelmini: “We have the great privilege of being able to count on a person like Draghi“.
In short, there is one ‘bipartisan’ concern because both the dem and the other political forces of the majority ask that the historical brand be saved, that there is no stew and that the occupation be safeguarded. “It is right that we also consider exceeding the sale date set by the previous government for the end of 2021”, says, for example, the Undersecretary to the Mef of the Durigon League, according to whom the start of the negotiations between the Ministry of Economy and UniCredit for the purchase of Monte dei Paschi “does not exclude other solutions as well”.
“We are only at the beginning”, he affirms, reiterating that the MPS operation must pass through some essential requirements. On the dossier there is a battle (“Monte dei Paschi di Siena is a disaster by the Democratic Party, which is managing to blow up the oldest bank in the world, founded in 1472, which survived two world wars but not the bad management of the left “, for example Salvini attacks) but it is common to believe that the executive in some way must intervene in Brussels, so that it may grant an extension to the deadline by which the state must sell its shares in Monte dei Paschi.
Not only Lega and Fdi insist on the extension of at least one year of the sale date, but also the Nazarene party. “We need to negotiate with Europe about the times“, also affirms the leader of the Leu group in the Senate, De Petris,” the proposal presented by Unicredit does not appear acceptable. Therefore, other hypotheses must also be tested and alternative solutions sought “.” There is no rush to sell off Mps “, says the president of the Tuscany Region Giani.” We cannot allow the State to sell off a strategic asset such as Mps after they have been committed 20 billion between public and private resources “, the position of the 5-star Movement.
“I do not see why Europe cannot give us months to better manage this situation, to avoid redundancies and do the best for citizenship“, says for example the pentastellato Gubitosa. Also the pentastellated Ruocco, president of the parliamentary inquiry commission on the banking system, is slowing down.” It is serious that the government has communicated its unwillingness to appear in the Finance Committee to answer the question time of Fratelli of Italy on the MPS affair “, in the meantime attacks Brothers of Italy.
