The maneuver under examination in the Montecitorio courtroom

The general discussion on the 2022 maneuver has begun in the Chamber, dismissed at second reading by the Montecitorio Budget Committee with the mandate to the rapporteur Daniela Torto (M5s).

Around 6-7 pm the Government’s request for confidence in the text in the version approved by the Senate is expected. The work of the assembly should then stop for 24 hours.

The text was approved without changes with respect to the one licensed by the Senate.

Filed the economic match, all attention will be focused on the challenge of challenges: the one for the appointment of Sergio Mattarella’s successor. “I will indicate the” start date “in the letter that I will send for the convening of Parliament in joint session, which will be sent on January 4”, Fico said in mid-December during the meeting with the parliamentary press for the traditional exchange of Christmas greetings.

“The letter will also be sent on January 4 to the Regions for the identification of regional delegates”. After Fico’s announcement, it will take about ten days to allow the regional Consogli to indicate their three delegates to send to Rome (one for Val d’Aosta).

But Parliament will also have to approve the green pass decree, around mid-January. Therefore it is highly probable that the earliest effective date for the start of voting for the Quirinale may be around January 20.

But beyond the parliamentary agenda, it is the political game that is wide open. The leaders of the main parties have postponed the dossier, at least publicly, to January. Even though, as the Lega leader himself, Matteo Salvini, admits, contacts are in progress: “I hope a president of the Republic will be elected soon and well, and I am working on this personally. Also in these days, even in these hours, I am by contacting all my secretary colleagues, because with so many problems Italians have, I realize that politics demonstrates concreteness and speed in making choices “, said the leader of the Carroccio.

It is likely that the center-right, after the summit at Villa Grande by Silvio Berlusconi last week, may come together again in the first days of January. And of course the maneuvers are also underway on the center-left front: on January 13 a meeting of the Pd management is already on the agenda that will begin to discuss the Colle game.

The election of the Head of State is inevitably intertwined with the fate of the government. Mario Draghi, after the words pronounced during the press conference at the end of the year, no longer spoke publicly. The atmosphere is one of expectation, for the start of the games we will have to wait a few more days.
