Elections of the President of the Republic 2022

The center-right has its candidate al Quirinale, but the Democratic Party does not fit the center-left. The strategy of Enrico Letta, which yesterday brought together the dem leadership, and of his party is clear: no early vote, pact with the center-right but no to Berlusconi. For his part, the leader of Forza Italia wants to go all the way, with the support – at least according to what he says publicly – from Matteo Salvini. Meanwhile, the secretary of the Democratic Party reiterated the concept on Tg3: “In this Parliament, no one has a majority, we must find an agreement on an institutional president, super partes and on the continuation of the legislature to address Covid, Pnrr and the dramatic energy cost that impacts on bills“. And he pointed the finger at the opposing coalition:”The center-right is wrong, because it is clear that Berlusconi’s candidacy is a dead end“. Then he reiterated:”Let’s look for this name, let’s look for it together“.

According to Letta it is not yet the time to name names: “We will have to decide with our allies and the center right – has explained – Today we say that Draghi plays a fundamental role for the country and must be protected“. The same goes for a possible Mattarella bis, invoked by a part of politics:”First we need an agreement between the political forces for a legislative pact, then we will give the names“Letta insisted.

Then recalled the president of the European Parliament, who passed away a few days ago: “David Sassoli’s example is fundamental for this moment and also for the future – has explained – we will carry on his battles and his mild but absolutely determined style. That smile and that firmness, but above all its values“. In short, Letta does not unbutton himself on possible candidates who could go to oppose Silvio Berlusconi – a name jointly made by the center-right – but prefers to insist on his strategy: ask all political forces to sit down to negotiate. Berlusconi, however, for Letta is to be excluded from the start.
