The Council of Ministers has started, which has on the agenda the simplification decree, the budget settlement decree and the State Report, as well as the national reform program.
The Genova model, changes to the procurement rules. After weeks of negotiations, the most discussed issues of the simplification decree, delaying the arrival in the Council of Ministers of what Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte called "the mother of all reforms". Conte brings the text, of about fifty articles, to Cdm late at night, on the eve of an institutional visit to Portugal and Spain that will bring him to the heart of the European match for the funds of the Recovery fund. Unblocking investments, simplifying PA procedures, is a crucial piece of the program that the government will present in Brussels: the guidelines are outlined in the National Reform Plan, which Minister Roberto Gualtieri presents in the CDM itself. But the tug of war between M5s and Iv on one side, Pd and Leu on the other, goes on to the end. We discuss the thresholds for tenders, the rules concerning building permits. But the object of the dispute is above all the list of the great public works to be unlocked with the entrusting to extraordinary commissioners, so much so that in one of the latest drafts it is expected that there will be time to prepare it until the end of the year. Nor can it be excluded that the decree will be approved "unless otherwise understood", a formula that would still prolong a whole game within the majority that has been going on for weeks.
