Should Draghi finalize his resignation, the Italian president will have two main options: call an immediate election or call for the formation of a new, short-term government
According to Italian public broadcaster Raithe technocrat prime minister of the country, Mario Draghi, does not seems to want to “rethink” and remain at the head of the broad participation government.
“Draghi is calm, but also determined, it seems, to stick to his position,” Rai reported. Everything will be decided next Wednesday, when “Super Mario” will intervene in Rome’s parliament and senate. He will have to clarify if he wants to continue this governmental experience, for about another six months, setting his main priorities, or if his decision to resign is final and irreversible.
Should Draghi finalize his resignation, the Italian president will have two main options: to call immediate elections (probably for the first fortnight of October) or to request the establishment of a new, short-term government, with the main objective of drawing up and approving the new state budget.
At the same time, the country must continue to store energy in view of the winter, while the signing of new agreements to increase the import of natural gas from abroad is pending. The new vaccination campaign against the coronavirus must also be organized, with the updated vaccine, which is expected to be released in October. All this, according to many analysts, reduces the chances of a short appeal to the polls, and increases those – in the event of Draghi’s final departure – for the creation of a temporary government, with as much support as possible from the political forces.
