There is perhaps a tangle in our collective horizon. It may not happen, but it’s best to be prepared. The scene: on a day at the end of January, the President of Parliament in joint session proclaims the President of the Council as President of the Republic. Three presidents in one voice. And then? What will Mario Draghi do, will he resign as prime minister in the hands of the head of state, or rather of himself? Will he hold both positions until Parliament votes to trust a new executive? And if not, who will lead the government in the meantime?
To bring order, it is necessary to start from a double premise.
