The impersonation is a feature of Italian politics. Re-prove Matteo Renzi (44). With a new pirouette policy, which has caused bewilderment and perplexity on all on the left, the ex-prime minister and secretary of the Democratic Party (PD), he abandons his training and creates a new one. Announces that it will support the Government formed by the Movement 5 Stars (M5E) and the PD, but what condition because without this support, the premier Giuseppe Conte would not have a parliamentary majority.
Although it was known since a long time ago that Renzi was working on the launch of his own party, has surprised many that you have done so now, when just born the Executive can be weakened by the excision.
In an interview to "La Repubblica", Renzi claims that will around thirty parliamentarians (the PD has 52 senators and 111 representatives), which will form autonomous groups in the Chamber of deputies and in the Senate: "What pushes me to leave the PD is the lack of a vision of the future". The new party of Renzi will be centrist, and could be called Italy of the other or Together. According to him, "there's room for a new thing: The space of the future".
Until the last moment, Renzi received a very strong pressure to prevent the cleavage of the PD, whose secretary, Nicola Zingaretti , did not hide the great concern in the party and in the Government: "be Divided would be very serious, Italy wouldn't understand". Conte, who Renzi informed your decision by phone, noted with anger the news and recognized his collaborators his "bewilderment" and "concern" because it does not just rely on the promise of support of the former mayor of Florence: "Renzi wants only power and payroll".
Renzi, after being a protagonist in the formation of the Government of the PD and M5E, returns to change your mind for political expediency. Founded a party, with parliamentary groups of their own, have public funding and mounts an operation of power with a double objective. On the one hand, be a determining factor in the government and participate in the appointment of senior executives of 400 public companies, whose positions are renewed in the first quarter of 2020. In the second place, it seeks to gain the political space of the centre.Updated Date: 20 September 2019, 03:01
