Insiders argue that Mario Draghi he is about to lose his patience, there are so many interferences of the parties in the activity of the government which in fact is slowing down its propulsive action on some of the most delicate and important economic dossiers. For now, no one comes out of the closet and this means that Draghi it has not exhausted its enormous influence and for the moment the situation remains under his control. But in the long run, things could change as it is in the fate of governments born outside the polls on an emergency that is usually economic and in this case also health. The watershed will be in January – that in politics it is tomorrow – when it will be known if there will be the conditions to elect Draghi to the Quirinale.
If so, in some ways everyone is free the current and unnatural majority would have days numbered, we will see at the right time whether by death of the legislature and return to early voting or through some strange alchemy like the sleight of hand we have seen in the last four years. But if not, that is, if Draghi by choice or lack of alternative were to remain prime minister then let’s forget the political peace, which net of some skirmishes more for media use that we have seen from its establishment in Palazzo Chigi until today. Draghi would in fact find himself a to govern a year in the midst of a fierce and long electoral campaign (elections at the natural expiration of March 2022) without having its own parliamentary army deployed to protect and at the mercy of brawls and tripping between the leaders of the various parties.
Even the best of generals, and he is one, cannot manage to resist without troops for such a long period, a period in which – at least we hope – the Covid emergency will be over, which is basically the real bogeyman he has put to bed. parties. The buffer between Draghi and the ministers’ policy will suffice, some of them also influential, who obviously and legitimately will try to maintain the status quo? I doubt, not because he underestimates their authority but because in political history it has never happened that the secretary has privileged his ministers over the interests of the party. The ministers pass, the secretaries too, but afterwards, never before them.
