Pnrr, tight on the Court of Auditors, Fitto: 'No clash'

2023-05-31T19:51:56.881Z

Highlights: Government to put a brake on the control powers of the Court of Auditors on the PNRR. Powers that will be reduced because the accounting magistrates will no longer be able to operate the "concomitant control" on the projects of the Plan. "No country has yet requested the fourth installment" specifies the minister who tomorrow will meet the ANCI and then the other Regions. It will be necessary to wait a few hours for the outcome of the appeal on the admissibility of the government's amendment.


The Minister of European Affairs, Cohesion, South and Pnrr Raffaele Fitto at a press conference after the control room. "No country has yet requested the fourth installment" specifies the minister who tomorrow will meet the ANCI and then the other Regions. "We are working to reduce the time to achieve the result as soon as possible even before August 30" said Fitto Alluvione, on June 7 government-local authorities meeting (ANSA)


It is a matter of "respect". Roles and functions. Because there must be no "field invasions". The government, after days of controversy, explains the choice to put a brake on the control powers of the Court of Auditors on the PNRR. Powers that will be reduced because the accounting magistrates, if an amendment deposited in committee at Montecitorio passes, will no longer be able to operate the "concomitant control", that is, in progress, on the projects of the Plan.

An action that could also be requested by Parliament that now sees its prerogatives "weakened", with the raising of shields of the opposition, which asked for the intervention of the President of the Chamber to stop a "scandalous" operation that "heavily damages the balance of powers". It will be necessary to wait a few hours for the outcome of the appeal on the admissibility of the government's amendment (which does not intervene in the perimeter of the public administration but on the powers of a judicial body) to the PA decree, and comes after the recall of Sergio Mattarella to the presidents of the Chambers precisely to avoid making the decree laws rise by loading them in Parliament with unrelated changes.

"They mock the President of the Republic", sinks Riccardo Magi from +Europa, while allthe Democratic Party speaks of an "unacceptable gesture and asks the government to withdraw the amendment. AVS bluntly defines it as a "pig", the 5S see us as yet another attack on "transparency and legality" to which Giuseppe Conte announces an opposition "with all our strength", and the Third Pole accuses the executive of being "shameless" and of demonstrating that it does not want to "be disturbed". The proposal of the executive, which in case will be submitted to the vote on June 1, also provides for the extension of one year of the "shield" for tax damage. Another issue also raised by the Court, on which the executive has chosen to move "in line with previous governments, I do not understand the controversy", defends Minister Raffaele Fitto. Today for him was supposed to be the day of the report on the PNRR, the first of the center-right government, with which to photograph the state of the art but also outline the guiding criteria for requests to modify the Plan in Brussels. But the open conflict with the Court has inevitably occupied the debate so much so that tomorrow there will be a meeting between the accounting magistrates and the government at Palazzo Chigi to clarify the situation (in the afternoon they will see Fitto together with the undersecretaries Giovanbattista Fazzolari and Alfredo Mantovano).

The concomitant control, underlined Fitto, remained unimplemented "for 12 years, there has not been a single intervention, I would like to emphasize the timing". While now, the data that look in the government, on "47 resolutions" of the college "44" have been on the PNRR, without considering that the Draghi government to the Court has entrusted a "subsequent control" on the funds of the PNRR. Elements that will probably be brought to the table. In the morning, however, the warning of the governor of the Bank of Italy, Ignazio Visco, had also arrived, who in his last annual report had stressed that "there is no time to lose". Do "well, quickly but not quickly", the mantra of the executive summarized by Fitto, who nevertheless gathered the control room and illustrated at a press conference the general lines of the document, over 160 pages, in which the executive confirms its intention to ask for a revision of the PNR by August 31, butalready in mid-June the interlocutions with the offices of the commission. "This is an extremely delicate work that the government is carrying out with the utmost attention and with great responsibility", wrote Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni in the introduction, reiterating that the intention is to give "full implementation" to the Plan and to "put on the ground" all resources. But it is inevitable, the government writes in the report, to review the intermediate steps and possibly replace the projects that have proven unfeasible by June 2026. Because the war in Ukraine has completely changed the picture, price increases, or the absence of raw materials have slowed down the construction sites and the system still has "weaknesses" especially in the design phase. The review process, however, assures the government, will be carried out with a "fruitful parliamentary debate, with the aim of ensuring maximum transparency in the reporting of the results achieved".

"On the fourth installment it is right to ask the question. But no country has yet requested the fourth instalment." The minister said on the fourth installment "We will make a careful assessment. There are goals that can be changed. There are realities on which to intervene. On nurseries we will cross on June 30, modifying the intermediate goal, but we will achieve the goal," said Fitto.

"I appreciate the sense of responsibility of Minister Fitto who is working so that the financed works can be inaugurated and the deadline is inexorable: July 2026. It is better to give up some unworkable work than to say 'we have not been able to spend.'" So the Minister for Civil Protection, Nello Musumeci, ucome down from Palazzo Chigi after the control room convened on the PNRR. Asked by reporters when the list with the changes to the works will be presented, the minister simply said: "Ask Minister Fitto. I would risk giving the wrong news."
