The text as it is in danger of not having the numbers for final approval. Matteo Salvini, but also Matteo Renzi, had already launched yet another appeal at Palazzo Madama for an agreement as broad as possible. Yesterday the Zan bill began its course in the Senate against homotransphobia. Today the second round with the bill that is likely to skip. “If Letta and the Democratic Party insist on not wanting to listen, talk and find a solution, the law is dead”. This was announced by the leader of the League, Matteo Salvini, after today’s Senate vote which rejected the suspension of the examination of the Zan bill with a single vote, 136 to 135. The Senate Chamber did not approve the suspensive issues presented at Palazzo Madama on the Zan bill by Forza Italia and Lega. The nominal vote with electronic ballot thus ended with 135 votes in favor and 136 against. The Senate therefore rejected the suspension of the exam for a single vote.
So the Zan bill is now really at risk. After the first brawl in the Chamber yesterday, today the law sees the rejection of the suspension presented by Lega and Forza Italia. “As for the Zan law, the numbers are at risk – underlines the leader of Italia Viva Matteo Renzi, today in Florence, during a press conference to present his latest book ‘ControCorrente – And since they are at risk, we need a great agreement because by secret ballot this law does not pass. Those who want to go to the fight are doing it to bury the law. I am for a law that protects gay boys, trans boys. Change articles 1, 4 and 7 and go to close in the Chamber within 15 days “.
