Salvini and Berlusconi consider the coalition pact with Draghi to be broken with the prospect of new elections

The Italian political right wing represented in La Liga and Forza Italia has given for broken this Sunday the coalition pact with the country’s Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, in an indication that next Wednesday could be announced new elections after the resignation not accepted by the head of the Italian Government for lack of support in a vote on aid against inflation.

In a joint statement after a meeting in Sardinia, Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi ruled out the possibility of the two parties remaining in the governing coalition, which included the 5-Star Movement, after Draghi made it clear that he will not lead a new government that does not include the latter formation.

Draghi announced his resignation this week, considering that “most of the national unity that has supported the government since its creation has left”, following the absence of the hitherto coalition partner 5 Star Movement in the vote on an aid package in the Senate, with the result that “the pact of trust underlying the government action has failed”. The President of the Republic, Sergio Matarella, refused to accept the resignation.

Salvini and Berlusconi confirm in this regard that both the League and Forza Italia “rule out the possibility of continuing to govern with the M5S because of its incompetence and unreliability,” according to a statement picked up by ‘Il Messaggero’.

Thus, both leaders “with the usual sense of responsibility, agreed to wait for the evolution of the political situation, ready in any case to submit to the judgment of the citizens even in the very short term”, referring to the elections.

The Italian right wing would extremely benefit from a possible autumn election, in particular Giorgia Meloni’s nationalist Brothers of Italy, which currently leads the polls and is the only major party not backing Draghi.

Various party sources have confirmed that preparations have been launched for a possible electoral contest to be held on September 25, according to Democratic Party leader Enrico Letta, one of the main advocates of Draghi’s continuity.

The next milestone in this complex political process will be on Wednesday, when Draghi will appear before Parliament at the request of the president, Sergio Mattarella, to assess the endorsements and, if necessary, call the elections.
