Numbers in hand, what made the difference was 16 francs shooters. It is they who have materially buried the ddl Zan, the law against homotransphobia. For its promoter, however, numbers matter little because the manager has a name and surname: Matteo Renzi. His party, Italy Viva, “He got to to flirt with the center-right, with the League“. The political framework, he explains Alessandro Zan in an interview with Corriere della Sera, it changed when “the government of Draghi“And” Renzi’s party got it into its head that it wanted to be the needle of the balance of the Senate “. Thus the Renzians passed from yes compact to the bill (so they voted in the House) to the opening at changes to the text to meet the demands of the right. “Just hear the statements of Davide Faraone, the president of Italy alive in the Senate – says Zan – He speaks and it seems that to speak is Salvini“.
The democratic deputy speaks in the aftermath of the failure of Palazzo Madama, where the secret ballot on the “trap” requested by League e FdI put an end to his bill that would have increased the safeguards against the LGBT people in Italy. “The Democratic Party had calculated that on paper we had a benefit of at least 8-10 votes“Explains Zan, admitting that one defeat of the kind “I didn’t really expect it”. The result is that “two years of work have been thrown into the trash ”and Italy“ remains one of the very few countries in Europe a not have a civil rights law. We chase it from almost thirty years“.
This is why Zan turns to the Renzians and asks himself if “maybe they didn’t realize what they were doing”. Flirting with the League, the Renzians “got closer to the party that it is friend of Orbán and of Doubt, the Hungarian and Polish leaders. Orbán, do you understand? The one who voted the homotransphobic laws. Who shut the mouth of the reporters. Which has closed the universities“, Attacks the deputy Pd. Which then also underlines the statements on Wednesday afternoon, after the vote: those of the Northern League and those of the Renzians, like this similar between them. Pharaoh “spoke arrogance of the Democratic Party, of the Five Stars, of Leu. You closed your eyes and it seemed to speak Maximilian Romeo, the Northern League leader “.
It is the consequence of a process that began this summer and which has always had a very specific client: Matteo Renzi. The one who not even a few months earlier had contributed with his parents to write the law and who, having blown up the government, decided to start flirting with the right to make it count his handful of deputies and senators. “When we voted for the Zan bill a year ago, Italia viva voted compact with us and Forza Italia left freedom of conscience ”, recalls Zan. Instead, everything is in the Senate suddenly changed: “Those from living Italy told us we had to mediate with the League. But how do you mediate with a party that has done nothing else since the Zan bill arrived in the Senate if not try to bury it“.
According to Zan, his law has also been ditched due to political logic and bigger matches, “first of all that of Quirinale“. “Forza Italia with this vote made the technical tests for the elections of the Quirinale ”, affirms the deputy Pd. If in this case there is also Renzi’s hand, “I don’t even want to think about it”, comments Zan. “I don’t want to think that Italia viva was really capable of doing all this on the skin of people’s rights“. In any case, the parliamentarian says to stay optimistic because “two years of work have strengthened one in our country consciousness on the importance of rights “. “Fortunately – he concludes – our country is far ahead of its political class “.
