The national leadership unanimously approves the indication to its parliamentary groups to vote for confidence in the Draghi government, as the secretary Nicola Zingaretti had proposed when opening the proceedings. A relationship in which he defended the value of the axis with M5s and Leu not only in supporting Giuseppe Conte’s executive past, but also in perspective, in view of the upcoming administrative and subsequent policies. An unconditional yes to Draghi who stops any attempt to curb: the secretary warns that we are facing a government and an “innovative” experience but that it will not destroy politics.

“A general anti-political tide is moving for the delegitimization of the Democratic Party just back as protagonist”, he underlines. And as for the debate within the party, Zingaretti defines the request of the congress as “Martians” and convenes the Dem national assembly for February, which should open internal discussions on the future identity of the party.

“The success of the government around Professor Draghi – said Zingaretti – depends on the unity of M5s, Leu and Pd. Everyone in good faith cannot fail to acknowledge that Professor Draghi too would have had difficulties without this majority ”.

In short, the arduous journey made with the Conte II government was useful not only for what that executive achieved, but also for the success of that of the former ECB governor. This alliance must now move forward in view of the June administrative elections, when voting will take place in the major Italian cities and where Zingaretti hopes to report success in most of them. The relationship with M5s, he admitted, was not and will not be a health walk; the Secretary Dem spoke of “hand to hand” with “differences that will always remain”.

But that relationship is the only prospect if the Democratic Party wants to get out of the culture of “isolation” into which Renzi had dragged it, and also in relation to the support of the Draghi government. This approach was supported by Base Riformista, which intervened with the coordinator Alessandro Alfieri. The area headed by Guerini and Lotti was limited to this passage, while the one close to Matteo Orfini, while supporting support for the Draghi government, expressed with Francesco Verducci “strong dissent on the subject of the subordination of the Democratic Party on the altar of the scheme the strategic alliance with the 5s “. In his reply, Zingaretti rejected the idea of ​​a dichotomy between identity and alliance and announced the convening of a National Assembly in February to begin discussions on “a new presence of the Democratic Party in the country”. So more the idea of ​​a thematic congress that does not question the current organization chart.
Also because whoever will lead the party in the next elections will also draw up the lists.
