The assumption from which the reasoning on the extension of the Green pass starts and which has unlocked the deadlock is the following: “There are no categories of companies or private companies that do not want the obligation of the Green Certificate for their employees”. It is the concept that in these hours bounces in the offices of Palazzo Chigi where we prepare for the control room on Thursday and where, before the Council of Ministers, Mario Draghi will try to extend the health passport to all workers, not just public ones . The premier’s goal is to extend the obligation of the green certificate immediately and with a single decree. In this case, a new confrontation with the social partners may be necessary but also to overcome the resistance of Matteo Salvini who believes that a limited use of this tool is necessary. For this reason, the idea of ​​going big is not yet completely ruled out. Much will depend on the ongoing clash within the League.

Certainly on Thursday the rule will be approved that will extend the Green pass to employees of the Public Administration, to these will be added those who, in the private sectors, work in contact with the public, in particular with those who have the obligation to show the green certificate. We are talking about bars, restaurants, cinemas, theaters and gyms. Salvini also agrees on this but not on the total extension, on which the premier will work in the next two days.

Salvini is not dealing with the dossier himself. Even the expected meeting with Draghi has not yet taken place and between one meeting and another, only today six press points organized, the leader of the League continues to oppose while most of his followers go in another direction: “Extend it to all workers? We would be the only ones in Europe to do so ”. The Democratic Party and Forza Italia have the opposite opinion, sharing the executive’s strategy. Prime Minister Draghi goes straight on seems not to care about Salvini, convinced that he has a large part of the League, led by Giancarlo Giorgetti, and the governors of the North on his side: “Things must be done because they must be done, not to have an immediate result even when they are unpopular ”, he says, quoting Beniamino Andreatta on the occasion of the ceremony for the naming of the Bologna Business School auditorium after the former DC minister.

Salvini, in order to keep the point, tries to sew with Luca Zaia and returns to ask for “millions of free quick pads”. The governor of Veneto, who in recent days had defined the green pass “a license of freedom”, and had observed that the winning line within the League “is that of the governors”, now seems to be retracing his steps. He denies that there is an axis with Giorgetti, denies the existence of a chat of the governors and above all goes back to talking about a “limited use” of the green certificate. Following a well-defined direction, comes the leader’s statement: “I just heard Zaia, who reiterates that it should be used in a limited way.” But voices remain isolated compared to those who, in the League, give a voice to the entrepreneurs of the North who ask for the mandatory Green Pass for their employees. And the rest of the government agrees too. Hence the decision of Draghi to try the path of a single decree, already on Thursday, which includes all workers, public and private.
