On the one hand, the Silvio Berlusconi hypothesis, told by Affaritaliani.it. On the other hand, the attempt to keep Sergio Mattarella in his place until 2023 e upon the arrival of the new government. The latter would be the plan of three exponents of the majority of the Draghi government, namely Matteo Salvini’s League, Matteo Renzi’s Italia Viva and Luigi Di Maio’s Five Star Movement of the “current”.
The Salvini-Renzi-Di Maio chats
The three leaders have already shown in the past that they have a certain feeling, writes the sheet, which reports: “IThe most active, as they confess from Italia viva, is precisely the former Tuscan prime minister. Who listens, probes and tries to understand how to build the conditions to ensure that the election of the next Head of State does not coincide with the dissolution of the Chambers, which is fatal for its political strength. For these three protagonists, the legislature must go on until 2023, for different reasons “.
The arrival of Conte changes the cards on the table
At the base of this plan there would be the concern about the imminent political irruption of Giuseppe Conte in the very heart of the M5s and of the Italian political scene. The raid that, according to Il Foglio, “worries the Lega and Italia Viva. It is everyone’s belief, in fact, that the Advocate of the People, after the summer, will begin to raise the tone. And he will try to push the Grillini groups towards the intransigence costs that cost towards Draghi: from justice to the environment, just to name two banners “.
Di Maio, Salvini and Renzi want to reach 2023
But Di Maio, who still has an important following of deputies in the Chamber, is very cautious and continues to show his governing soul. “It is not a mystery”, continues Il Foglio, “for Conte the elections in February would be a godsend, he would be the one to give the cards in the M5s, choosing who to save among the parliamentarians in the second term and generally renewing the machinery of the elected in his image and likeness. Time, on the other hand, can be the best ally for those who play another game and for those who, even among the grillini, aim to get Draghi to close the legislature “.
The idea: to keep Mattarella at the Quirinale until the elections
So how can the legislature continue by keeping Draghi at Palazzo Chigi even after the election of the Head of State? “Net of the usual denials, the dream of many would be this: to paralyze the parliament on a name that cannot be found and then try to convince, hat in hand, President Mattarella to resist another year”, concludes Il Foglio .
