"I have always been aware of what it was to govern, I have never seen it as a personal goal, I have been aware even from the opposition of the risks and problems that governing entails": so Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni during an interview with Quarta Repubblica broadcast in the evening on Rete4.
"One thing I didn't consider when I was in opposition is that when you're prime minister almost everything that happens in the world affects you so the clearest feature today is that the unexpected, when you're head of government, is the most accurate prediction you can make and for me working schematically has had a very strong impact. You chase the emergency and you must be able to fear the straight bar".
"Of course we talk to each other!" So Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni answering a question on relations with President French Macron and in general relations between Italy and France, during the recording of her interview with 'Fourth Republic'. And he reiterated: "Relations between Italy and France are necessarily solid, as between neighboring nations". He then distanced himself from the "reading that some observers make on international politics, as if it were the stuff of teenagers, as if we do not talk to each other or do not greet each other ...". Finally, on the statements of the French Interior Minister, very critical of Italy, he clarified: "It was a significant mistake. It was annoying but we must have the lucidity to distinguish politics and relations between parties and those between governments".
"I think I have an advantage - said the prime minister responding to those who asked her if a question of consensus was being posed in her government choices -, which is time: I am at the head of a solid majority, I give myself 5 years of horizon and I am not governing looking at immediate consensus and I can afford it and when you have this luck you can make choices that maybe immediately compress the consensus but that if You are convinced that in the long run they will be read for what they were". "I hope to be able to bequeath to this nation - he added - other governments that have a legislature horizon, which is the only way to make the right decisions". "I am sure - she concluded - that in the medium distance the results of the work we are doing will be seen".
"I have not changed my mind from what I said here two years ago: if to privilege myself I have to sell myself or the nation I am not willing to do so. Then of course you have to look for viable solutions, there are things you thought and then studying the dossier you realize that the picture is different, but even today that I am prime minister I prefer to go home than become different".
"The left is very much in trouble - said Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni interviewed by the Fourth Republic -. Not only does he say that there is an authoritarian drift if the Court of Auditors extends the rules of the Draghi government. I quietly observe that we are doing what the previous government did. The problem is that there is an authoritarian drift if someone who comes from the right and not from the left does not have the same rights that they have. This is a problem. Thegold say that there is an authoritarian drift on the Court of Auditors that continues to do the checks, makes the half-yearly report and no one has put a gag on it".
