The issue of the third consecutive mandate for governors and an increase in the number of councilors in small regions so that the representation of parties in the executive bodies is guaranteed.

These are requests from the Regions contained in a letter sent by the president of the Conference of Regions, Massimiliano Fedriga, to the government, in particular to Minister Calderoli.

In the letter, the Regions underline the need "to initiate a constructive and collaborative discussion with the government". 

"The Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces, taking into account the positions already previously taken, in particular with reference to the mandate limit for the top bodies of territorial bodies and the number of members of the executive bodies of the Regions, shared the need to start a constructive and collaborative discussion with the government", reads the letter signed by Fedriga. 


Third mandate: Meloni, is the government at risk?

Left has vain hope

"The government at risk for its third term is yet another hope of the left that will not be realised."

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni stated this to Affaritaliani.it when answering the question whether the executive is in danger following the rejection of the League's amendment which would have allowed regional presidents a third mandate.

Third mandate, Toti "is close to an institutional clash"

"There is a theme that escapes the debate concentrated on the rifts between the political forces: the rift between Roman politics and that of the periphery of the country, a very dangerous divergence between center and periphery which borders on institutional clash given the appeals that many are ventilating".

The governor of Liguria Giovanni Toti said this in an interview given to 24 Mattina-Interviste on Radio24.

"It is a centre-periphery split which can be clearly seen from the very harsh stance of the mayor of Bari De Caro and the president of Anci, who even promises to appeal to the Constitutional Court".

Manfredi, limit on mandates also for parliamentarians

"If a limit must be placed on mandates, which is also an acceptable position in an overall logic, then it must exist for everyone. At a time when the election of parliamentarians is not based on preferences, but on choices made by the national secretariats , then perhaps that limit should apply to everyone."

The mayor of Naples, Gaetano Manfredi, said this, speaking to Sky, regarding the debate on the third mandate.

"My position and that of the mayors is that placing a constraint on the mandate of only mayors and regional presidents seems a bit of a contradiction - added Manfredi - I think that the will of the people must be safeguarded: when there are those who administer well it is It is also necessary to guarantee administrative continuity and where it is necessary to intervene it must be done in a more comprehensive approach than a reform of local autonomy because spot interventions often create more problems than they solve".

"I believe that at a time when we are talking about local administrators it is important that a national party listens to the requests. As far as I know, the management had decided that there would be a subsequent moment of reflection, it would probably have been better to leave the chamber so that this moment of reflection could continue within the national party", added Manfredi regarding the negative vote expressed yesterday by the Democratic Party in the Senate commission on the third mandate.

"I believe that there must be greater listening to the administrators who represent the interface with the territories and with the citizens - he added - this difference in sensitivity that always emerges between Roman decisions and the territory gives a non-positive signal. We must have a greater ability to interpret this relationship and often decisions that are also legitimate and justified by a more national approach of maintaining a united front of the opposition, then go into conflict with local sensitivities".
