Extend the state of emergency to October 31st instead of the end of the year. The government, as Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has already anticipated, intends to expand the exceptional measures for the fight against Coronavirus and an ad hoc resolution may already arrive in the Council of Ministers this week, accompanied also by a decree that is useful for making order between the various deadlines set during these months. No decision has been made yet, several sources point out, but it is possible that we may decide to proceed gradually. Choosing a shorter deadline would have the disadvantage - it is the reasoning - of making the fate of interventions in favor of families and businesses more uncertain.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the government will approve a new dpcm to confirm the package of measures that expire on July 14 (from the tightening of the nightlife to flights) until the end of the month and which are still deemed necessary to prevent Covid from returning to spread dangerously. To report to Parliament almost simultaneously the decisions taken by the Executive will be the minister Roberto Speranza: the Health owner will appear on Tuesday evening in the Chamber in Montecitorio (the previous time he had been in the Senate) and will illustrate the measure.
The majority and the oppositions will be able to present resolutions but - unlike the game that is played on the pitch - in this case the vote should go smoothly. The Democratic Party with Stefano Ceccanti, who has also asked the government several times to deal with Parliament, is satisfied but also asks for "some first explanations" to come immediately and asks for the day on which the Prime Minister "will come to receive" addresses of Parliament on the post of 31 July ". Right and opportune, says the leader of the Senate of the Senate Federico Fornaro, to evaluate an extension of the state of emergency, without the issue being dominated by sterile propaganda ", even if the party companion Stefano Fassina maintains the need to reverse the order of the work: first the discussion in the Chambers and then the go-ahead from the government.
Granitics against the use of tools that cannot be modified by senators and deputies instead of the representatives of the oppositions: Lega, Fratelli d'Italia and Forza Italia point the index against the risk of "full powers" exercised by the premier through the choice of regulatory instruments with preferential lanes but also against majority parties. Giorgia Meloni is convinced that the extension of the state of emergency is nothing more than an escamotage of ministers and parliamentarians to "save the seats" while Silvio Berlusconi took pen and paper and in a letter to the Press he reiterated the willingness to "collaborate" but he also called "the decision to force the Constitution and the transparency of the democratic process unacceptable."
