The game is played around articles 88 and 92 and article 94 of the Constitution
There is no constructive no-confidence mechanism in the constitutional reform for the introduction of the direct popular election of the President of the Council of Ministers and the rationalization of the relationship of trust which should arrive in the Council of Ministers next Tuesday. This is being talked about inappropriately – Adnkronos learns – given that in the constitutional bill, initially composed of 5 articles later reduced to three, and of which some points could still be discussed again, n
It has not been foreseen that Parliament can pass a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister and indicate his successor. One is in fact the certain will in the field: the direct election of the prime minister expressed in a new Italian model, inspired by the regional system but with notable differences due to the presence of the President of the Republic. Therefore, no reference to foreign models as there is no analogous system in comparative experience. These are the issues, all still being defined, which will be at the center of the majority summit on the reforms scheduled for Monday, with the participation of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
The knot to be resolved soon and discussed is, if anything, tangled in terms of the powers of the head of state. There will be continuity with the ‘before’ but the constitutional bill will certainly affect two articles of the Constitution, 88, 92 and 94 around which the game is being played. In fact, it is foreseen in the draft of the constitutional bill – seen by Adnkronos –
a amendment to article 88
of the Constitution which excludes the possibility
for the President of the Republic to dissolve a single Chamber.
A. is also planned amendment to article 92 of the Constitution replaced by the following: “The Government of the Republic is composed of the Prime Minister and the Ministers, who together constitute the Council of Ministers. The Prime Minister is elected by universal suffrage
and directed, in a single shift, for a period of five years
. Voting for the election of the President of the Council and of the Chambers takes place using a single ballot paper.
The law regulates the electoral system of the Chambers according to the principles of representativeness and governability and in such a way that a prize assigned on a national basis guarantees the candidates and lists linked to the President of the Council of Ministers 55 percent of the seats in the Chambers.
The President of the Council of Ministers is elected in the Chamber in which he presented his candidacy
The President of the Republic gives the elected President of the Council of Ministers the task of forming the Government and appoints, upon proposal of the Prime Minister, the Ministers
In the end amendments are made to Article 94 of the Constitution. “The third paragraph is replaced by the following: Within ten days of its formation the Government presents itself to the Chambers to obtain their confidence. In the event that the motion of confidence in the Government chaired by the President-elect is not approved, the President of the Republic renews the mandate of the President-elect to form the Government. If the latter also does not obtain the confidence of the Chambers, the President of the Republic proceeds to dissolve the Chambers”.
And after the last paragraph the following is added: “In the event of termination of the office of the Prime Minister, the President of the Republic may confer the task of forming the Government on the resigning Prime Minister or on another parliamentarian elected in conjunction with the President elected, to continue implementing the Government program. In such cases, for the purposes of reaching the majority in each Chamber for the approval of the motion of confidence, only the favorable votes of the parliamentarians elected in connection with the President-elect, as well as of the parliamentarians who voted for the motion of confidence in the Government, are counted. chaired by the elected Prime Minister”.
