Almost every parliamentary party supports Draghi in forming a government

The former president of the European Central Bank, in the absence of his office, continued talks to form a government in the House of Representatives in Rome. The line of successive party delegations was closed by the League led by Matteo Salvini and the Five Star Movement (M5S), which ruled until January 19, with the last delegation led by founder Pepe Grillo.

At a press conference following the meeting with Draghi, Matteo Salvini said the League had not imposed conditions, had not requested ministerial posts, and had not vetoed any possible government involvement by any other party. Salvini suggested that the left parties said no to joint rule with the League.

He stressed that in the current health and economic crisis, the university wants to play a full role and is ready to take active government action instead of external support. The leader of the League: “We want to be part of a government representing Italians in Brussels with a head held high.”

Salvini noted that as a leader of the center-right coalition, he is more involved in the appropriate use of € 200 billion in economic recovery funds than by looking at their distribution from afar. As the only condition, Matteo Salvini urged the incoming prime minister not to raise taxes. Hajra, a member of the center-right coalition, assured Mario Draghi of his support early until Friday. Alone The Italian Brotherhood (FdI), led by Giorgia Meloni, says no to calling the elections.

Analysts say the FdI, which has been constantly increasing in polls by nearly 16 percent, could increase its support in the face of the new government. The League can take risks and lose voters, but Matteo Salvini, with the support of economist Mario Draghi, could give his party “institutional recognition” on the international and European political arena. The leader of the League, along with Mario Draghi, can prepare for the role of Prime Minister in the upcoming elections.

On Saturday morning, founder Beppe Grillo, a companion who has become a party to the Five Star Movement, gave an hour-long motivational lecture to encourage party members who quit the government. Then the party delegation led by Grillo consulted Mario Draghi. The M5S will also support the emerging government on the condition that the outgoing Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte be given the position of Minister and M5S will have the Ministry of Environment. According to him, it will not be easy for Mario Draghi to unite the League and the Left Democratic Party (PD) into one team. Commentators have said that M5S alone doesn’t matter, as he led the league and then PD as well. However, news of the association’s participation in both M5S and PD membership sparked a wave of protests.

After the talks, Draghi said, “A summary of the talks awaits me, and the parties will have their say in Parliament.” Mario Draghi will consult with the unions on Monday and then hold another round of consultations with the parties. He is scheduled to present his ideas on forming a government to the head of state no later than Wednesday.
