sets aside its "niet" to the electoral law, which had blocked the
for the whole of July, allowing this reform urged by the Democratic Party to take its first formal step next Tuesday.
has in fact given its consent in
the Chamber's Constitutional Affairs Commission
to schedule the adoption of the Germanicum as the basic text for 8 September.
arousing the positive reactions of the Democratic Party, whose secretary
I, on Repubblica, had launched his own "J'accuse" against the allies.
The referendum on the cut of parliamentarians crosses the path of the electoral law, with the two fronts both taking to the streets on 12 September.
"It is no longer possible to bear the hypocrisy of those who act to destabilize the current political situation" wrote Zingaretti in a letter to Repubblica.
In particular, the secretary Dem stigmatized those who empty
"weaken the Democratic Party and the government"
by winning the No in the referendum and blocking the reforms linked to the cut of parliamentarians, including the electoral one, on which the Democratic Party insists after they had been agreed in the majority .
A strong reminder that at least in the Constitutional Affairs Commission of the Chamber found a confirmation: the leader of Italia Viva,
Marco Di Maio
, gave the consent to vote on the Gemanicum next Tuesday (proportional with a 5% threshold) as the basic text, while Friday 4, the amendments to the constitutional reform will be presented first signed by Federico Fornaro (Leu) who wants to compensate for
the negative effects of the cut of the parliamentarians
A go-ahead from IV, which will facilitate Zingaretti in proposing to the Management next Monday the yes to the referendum, in the light of the fact that "the reform work is back in motion" as
Roberta Pinotti and Andrea Orlando said

The center-right was of a very different opinion, whose group leaders in the Commission (
Igor Iezzi of the Lega, Emanuele Prisco of Fdi and Francesco Paolo Sisto of FI
) thundered against "the forcing on the scheduling of the vote for the adoption of the basic text of the electoral law that he totally ignores the country's priorities, favoring the petty reasons of political convenience of the Democratic Party ".
"The basic text of the majority will never be read, but there are those who are satisfied", joked Maria Stella Gelmini.
If time clears up on the electoral law, there are still clouds in the Dem house on the referendum.
The promoters of the No, such as
Tommaso Nannicini, Matteo Orfini, Francesco Verducci and Fausto Racini
criticize Zingaretti who has politicized the outcome by linking the survival of the government to it.
At a press conference, the parliamentarians of various parties who collected the signatures for the referendum said they are beginning to believe in a No victory, especially if the voters are few in number.
Renato Brunetta urged
Berlusconi, Salvini and Meloni to
make a pact to allow free voting.
M5s instead aims to maintain the current prevalence of yes, photographed by polls, and on 12 September will organize a
with gazebos and banquets in the squares of Italy.
On the same day there will also be a demonstration by the Youth Committee for the No, to which the
