"Italy is now more credible, more stable, more listened to", thanks to its government. Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni told Tg1, a year after the elections. "I was hoping better on immigration. We worked a lot, the results are not what we hoped to see. It is a very complex problem, but I am sure that we will get to grips with it. But this issue deserves a second phase," he added.
The numbers speak for themselves on the superbonus. One hundred and forty billion euros of hole taken away from health, education, pensions, to renovate second homes and even castles. On basic income, we did the right thing and the one we promised: distinguish those who can work from those who cannot. Those who cannot work keep the subsidy, those who can work are right to have work and training," said the premier.
"I see the horizon of 5 years of government - adds Meloni - and that horizon also serves me to carry out the great reforms that this nation needs. I would like this to be the year of reforms: to see the first building blocks of tax reform, to initiate constitutional reform, to do the bulk of justice reform. And then the great reform of merit, particularly in the school and intervene on the housing emergency. There is a lot of work to do but we will respect the commitments made".
On the issue of the minimum wage, says the premier, "it amazes me that the opposition is now discovering its usefulness, because in ten years in government they have not achieved it. I fear it may worsen the condition of more workers than those to whom it improves, but we are waiting for the proposal of the CNEL".
