The press conference of Italia Viva, postponed by almost an hour, begins with the confirmation of his resignation of the two ministers Teresa Bellanova and Elena Bonetti, of Undersecretary Ivan Scalfarotto and with a sentence, pronounced by Matteo Renzi, which puts an end to the second Conte government, at least as we have known him so far: “The king is naked. Conte created a democratic vulnus ”.
An act that opens officially the government crisis notwithstanding the Democratic Party tried to mediate until the last useful moment and despite the fact that Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte himself in extremis, after a conversation with the Head of State, offered Matteo Renzi a legislative pact to revive the majority. Nothing to do, the leader of Italia Viva reacts by resigning the ministers and the news bounces on all international sites. The 5-Star Movement gathers around Conte, shortly afterwards the Democratic Party does too, speaking of an “incomprehensible choice”. The premier in the CDM accepts his resignation, reiterating that he has tried to avoid this crisis.
It was a long day, but the mending attempts did not go in the desired direction. The leader of Italia Viva eventually throws the ball into the field of the Prime Minister, thus rejecting the proposal to sit at the table. For Renzi, Conte’s resignation is essential: “A new Conte government? We have no vetoes on anyone and no prejudices, we are not interested in a name, we are interested in moving Italy forward. Does Conte want to come to Parliament? Going to Parliament is not a threat, it is not a concession, it is democracy ”. Renzi, however, knows well that, without the votes of Italia Viva and in the absence of those responsible, the premier would be disheartened. Then he underlines, “both for this majority”, therefore M5s, Italia Viva, Pd and Leu, “that for a possible different form of parliamentary majority there is not a single name for Palazzo Chigi. Whoever says either guy or vote is irresponsible ”.
It does not completely close to the current Prime Minister, to a Count ter, but neither does it rule out a new premier. And indeed, in a conference, as a good poker player, Renzi also put on the plate his conditions for sitting at a possible table: “We ask that democratic forms be respected, the construction sites must be unblocked, we must be in a position to reopen the schools, to have a united line on major industrial issues, we need growth. Progress has been made in the Recovery Plan, but a big problem remains: why don’t you take the Mes? ”. Then here is the coordinator of Italia Viva: “Everyone said it didn’t work anymore, even the 5Stelle. We have opened the crisis on behalf of the others ”, confides Ettore Rosato, guest of Restart on Rai2 and during the same program broadcast tonight Teresa Bellanova underlines how now the choice is“ in Conte’s hands ”.
ll ritiro dshe due Ministere it does not necessarily mean the end of the executive. A gesture is needed. IS in this case, after the words of Conte and Renzi, it seems clear that the premier must decide how to proceed, whether to try or not, once again to have everyone sit around a table. But if the premier did not trust him, imagine after a press conference that the leader of IV has imprinted against him.
Couldò also go up again to the Quirinale and resign his resignation. He could once again receive the task of forming a new government and in this case we would work on a Count to be born with the same majority as now. Or it canò ask to go to the Chambers to seek verification and hope for those responsible.
Regardless of what will happen in the next few hours, the photograph of the moment tells anger and disappointment among allies. “A serious mistake made by a few that we will all pay”, tweets the deputy secretary of the Democratic Party, Andrea Orlando. Shortly after, here is the secretary dem Nicola Zingaretti: “It is a very serious mistake against Italy and it is incomprehensible”. Vito Crimi is also tough: “I don’t think anyone understood the reasons for this choice. But now is the time for responsibility, not for personalism ”, writes the political leader M5S on social media.
Opening a crisis now “is a risk and a serious mistake” for the Minister of EU Policies, Enzo Amendola, who closely follows the Recovery plan dossier. The Minister of Economic Development, Stefano Patuanelli, when asked if there is still hope of recomposing the tear, does not close the door completely: “Let’s see …”, he says on leaving the Senate. Of the same opinion Andrea Marcucci, the leader of the Pd senators among the most dialoguing: “Renzi’s is a serious mistake, but the reasons for the confrontation have yet to be practicable”. Now we await the move by Conte, who in the meantime responded hard-nosed to Renzi by accepting the resignation of the ministers.
