The Council of Ministers unanimously approved the constitutional reform bill.
It is a “constitutional reform that introduces the direct election of the prime minister and guarantees two objectives that we have been committed to achieving from the beginning: the right of citizens to decide who governs them, putting an end to setbacks, palace games and “technical” or “above citizens” governments, said the prime minister Giorgia Meloni At the press conference. The other objective is to “guarantee that those elected by the people govern” with “stability.”
“In the last 75 years of republican history we have had 68 governments with an average duration of a year and a half. This is the mother of all the reforms that can be made in Italy because if we take a step back and look at the last 20 years we have had 12 prime ministers,” Meloni highlighted. “When governments return home after a year and a half there is a weakness. I think it is a fundamental reform. It is a priority and precisely because we are stable and strong we have the responsibility to take advantage of this opportunity and leave something to this nation.” that can solve its structural problems”.

“What does not work in the system is the legislative horizon”, which is too short: therefore “current spending is favored more than investments.” Besides “The lack of stability has created a problem of international credibilityin our conversations,” said Meloni.
“The role of the President of the Republic is one of absolute guarantee and we have decided not to touch his powers.except the role of the Prime Minister,” who is elected,” continued Meloni.
“There was an exchange with the President of the Republic and with positions, as always happens with important measures of this type,” said the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister elected directly by the citizens, then, added Meloni, “must always respect the government program for which he has been elected.” .
The prime minister can only be replaced by a parliamentarian: therefore end of technical governments.

“I was in favor” of the “simul simul” solution, immediately returning to the polls in case of lack of confidence. Then a solution was chosen that “would allow in extreme cases to maintain the possibility of ending the legislature. For me it is a solution that is still good, but if Parliament wanted to think” about the first option “it would not find my opposition.” This was stated by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni at a press conference after the Council meeting on constitutional reform.
“There will be no senators for life, except the former presidents of the Republic and the current senators for life. After the cuts in parliamentarians, the incidence of life senators has increased a lot,” observed Meloni.
“The text includes the suggestions collected during the debate with both the majority and the opposition and with civil society,” declared the prime minister. Meloni hoped for a “provision that can achieve the greatest consensus” and that, he affirms, “we do not want to impose.”
For the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Antonio TajaniIt is “a reform that goes in the direction of stability and governability. A political government is strong because it respects the mandate of the voters. More stability and zero setbacks. It is a matter of international credibility. If the reform is approved, our interlocutors will speak for five years with the same Italian ministers. This will also strengthen our country’s position on the markets. I am glad that the powers of the Head of State have not been affected, which is always a guarantee.”
Casellati: ‘We could exceed the majority premium of 55%’

“The determination of a system is entrusted to the electoral law” with “a prize assigned at the national level that guarantees the majority of parliamentary seats to the party or coalition of parties linked to the Prime Minister.” Then, the category of senators for life is surpassed,” explained Casellati.
