February 5 – According to the European Union News Agency quoted by the European Network, Mario Draghi, the former president of the European Central Bank and a famous economist, began cabinet-forming consultations with the parties on the 4th after accepting the appointment of President Matarella, which will last until the 6th.
Draghi may form a cabinet composed of technocrats and politicians to win a vote of confidence in the new government from different parties.
According to reports, the main problems faced by Draghi’s cabinet formation include the opposition of Italy’s largest party, the Five Stars Movement, which may encounter a lot of trouble in later administration even if the new government passes a vote of confidence.
At present, although the leader of the League Party, Salvini, prefers an early general election, he has expressed conditional support for Draghi’s government; Berlusconi, chairman of the Italian Forces Party, has expressed his willingness to listen to Draghi’s ideas and suggestions; and Meloni, the leader of the Italian Brotherhood Party, has made a clear statement against the Draghi government and wants Seek the immediate general election.
In addition, Conte, who is about to end his post as Prime Minister, is also at a crossroads in his political career.
Conte held more than an hour of talks with Draghi on the 3rd.
It is reported that Draghi hopes that Conte can serve as foreign minister or deputy prime minister in the new cabinet, hoping to win the vote of confidence of the Five Star Movement Party.
On the afternoon of the 4th, local time, Conte held a press conference outside the Prime Minister’s Office and issued a statement expressing his approval of the Five Star Movement Party.
Conte said that Italy should not establish a technical cabinet, but need a politically cohesive government to face the current challenges.
He also stressed that he would not create any obstacles for Draghi’s government, and would always work for the national interest and allow the formation of a new government.
