The League's amendment to the elections bill for the third term for regional governors was rejected.

In the Constitutional Affairs commission, where the provision is being examined, the Northern League's Fratelli d'Italia and Forza Italia supported by Pd, M5s, Avs spoke out against the proposed amendment.

In support of the League he voted Italia viva.

Action did not participate in the vote.

In total there were 4 votes in favour, 16 against, one abstention and one did not participate.

The four votes in favor of the amendment on the third mandate for governors presented by the Northern League members in the elections bill belong to the League and Italia Viva, while the 16 against are from FDI, FI, UDC, Pd, M5S, Avs, one abstention is from SVP while Action did not participate.

The commission continues with the vote on the amendments. 

"There will be no problem in the majority if the law on the third mandate is not passed in Parliament.

The League's position is clear but we are in a democracy: every now and then the League's proposals pass, other times, as in this case, they are rejected because all the others, Forza Italia, Fratelli d'Italia, Pd, Cinquestelle are against. In my opinion it is a mistake."

Thus Matteo Salvini on the sidelines of an inspection on the Diana bridge, in Oschiri, answering journalists' questions on the split in the center-right over the third mandate. 

  And also according to

the prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, the third mandate does not cause problems for the executive

.

"It was not included in the program, it is not a government initiative, it was a parliamentary initiative, there were different opinions in complete serenity" it was discussed but "it is not a matter that in any way creates problems for the government or the majority", says the Prime Minister during the recording of '5 minutes' broadcast tonight on Rai1. 

In the morning, the League had withdrawn the amendment for the third mandate of the mayors.

The proposal was opposed by the government.

The amendment concerns large municipalities, those with more than 15 thousand inhabitants. 

"Vote for Parliament, let's move on. Vote for Parliament, they won't listen to it", said the response to Agorà Rai Tre from the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini.

"If the constraint of the third mandate is not put in order, in the next two-three years we risk having an almost endless dispute between the central government and the Regions", fears the president of Liguria, Giovanni Toti, on 'Mattino Cinque'.

"The Constitution provides that the statutes and electoral laws are the exclusive competence of the Regions - he recalls -. I don't know if I will want to serve the third mandate honestly, we will see if there are the conditions to do so, if it is an advantage for my Region and for the my political majority. It is a decision that falls to the territories, the administrators of the territories and above all the voters." 

"I take note of the vote. The road is still very long... Natura non facit saltus". This was told to ANSA by the President of Veneto Luca Zaia regarding the rejection of the League's amendment to the elections decree on the third term for the regional presidents .
