The first maneuver of the Meloni government is ready to face the discussion in Parliament. After receiving the stamp of the State Accounting Office and the signature of the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, the text of the provision was filed with the Chamber and in the next few days the parliamentary process will begin which will have to lead to the ok of the two Chambers by the end of the ‘year. Times are tight: to avoid the provisional exercise, which would be triggered in the event that the maneuver is not approved by December 31st, there are less than 5 weeks available. Thus, an invitation has arrived from the majority to limit the number of amendments during the discussion in the Chamber. Meanwhile, Giorgia Meloni has convened the CGIL, CISL, UIL and Ugl trade unions for December 7 for a further discussion on the maneuver (THE SPECIAL ).
The next steps towards the ok
The parliamentary process begins on Friday 2 December with Giancarlo Giorgetti, Minister of the Economy, who will be heard by the joint Budget Committees of the House and Senate. The deadline for the presentation of the amendments has been set for 7 December at 16.30, with Sunday 11 as the last limit for the selection of the nominated candidates. However, there is no agreement between the alignments on the number of amendments reported: the majority would like to limit them to 400, i.e. one per deputy, and a part of the opposition has said it is available for dialogue, but the Democratic Party has announced that it will ask discuss all the deposited texts. The discussion of the maneuver will then start from the Chamber: the provisional calendar provides that the text could arrive in the Deputies Chamber on 19 or 20 December, to then be discussed and approved during the week leading up to Christmas. The examination in the Senate, said the president Ignazio La Russa, will probably start on December 27th.
The text of the maneuver that arrives in Parliament consists of 174 articles. The system is essentially the one set up by the Mef, with interventions for 35 billion euros (three quarters committed to aid against expensive energy). Approximately 400 million euros would be available for requests for intervention by the majority through amendments in the Chamber. The filed version of the text maintains the articles that have been most discussed in recent days: from the one that eliminates the fines for merchants who do not allow the use of the POS for payments up to 60 euros (on which discussions are underway with the EU), the ceiling for the use of cash raised from one thousand to five thousand euros. There is also an extension of the Women’s Option, but a narrower one compared to the measure now in force. And then Quota 103 for early retirement, with 62 years and 41 payments but with a series of stakes. Among the new features, however, are two funds for cybersecurity and 50 million for Metro C in Rome.
