The alliance (far right) and the five-star movement (anti-system) entered the government led by the chairman of the council, Mario Draghi, in February. In less than three years, these two formations have taken a complete turn in their operations in Europe.
analysis. Mario Draghi knows very well that the European part will be the most important moment in his first speech as Chairman of the Italian Council in the Senate on Wednesday, February 17. Accustomed to his experience as a central bank governor, he carefully revised the minimum speech content, no doubt he weighed it up and said nothing. However, this passage will undoubtedly receive special attention.
“We must be proud of Italy’s contribution to the growth and development of the European Union. Without Italy, there would be no Europe, and without Europe, there would be no Italy. There is no sovereignty in loneliness. Forgetting what we were, denying what we might become, only cheating Us.” These sentences received enthusiastic applause in the middle and left, and were accepted with polite enthusiasm in the rest of the second half. But this did not prevent the overwhelming majority of senators from voting yes with 260 votes to 40 votes, allowing the Draghi government to escape.
The almost unanimous vote itself was nothing but a surprise. Nevertheless, it is hard to forget that in June 2018, the same parliament convened the most doubtful European government in Italian history (Conte I). A two-part government, the League (far right) and the Five-Star Movement (M5S, Anti-System Movement), openly challenged Brussels and the European Central Bank of then-President Mario Draghi (ECB) power.
Therefore, in less than three years, these two formations will be fully operational in Europe. M5S is the first organization to perform this task. This uncategorized form was created in 2009 by a strange series of characters-comedian Beppe Grillo and computer scientist Gianroberto Casaleggio. It is based on the affirmation of values (direct democracy on the Internet, “the fall of happiness”, and the inevitable The rejection of all the elites judged here) corruption), this can only violate Italy’s European commitments.
However, in its turbulent history, M5S has never had Europeanism at all. Its attacks on the European Union (EU) are basically just a variant of anti-elite rhetoric.In addition, if the members of M5S are tied with the UKIP (Brexit) in the legislature from 2014 to 2019, they will have a large degree of autonomy in the European Parliament, thus ensuring that their members are first “technical problem”, And vote more frequently than the PSE group or even the European Green Party.
