The appointments of the Rai directors hide the Quirinale match

The appointments at the top of the Rai news programs actually hide the idea that unprecedented balances are being created in view of the election of the Head of State at the end of January. A prospect that scares the leader of the 5Stelle, in his opinion excluded from the game of Rai appointments.

The tear on Rai relaunches tensions in the majority and throws an even more uncertain light on the great match of the Quirinale. The sensational protest of the 5-star leaders, who announced their intention to desert public TV, weighs heavily. The leader Giuseppe Conte, which from now on will entrust the communication of the movement only to the social channels of the M5S and to competing networks.

A tear by the former prime minister against state television, accused, according to him, of having managed the Cencelli manual of appointments to the head offices of the newspapers ‘forgetting’ the relative majority strength. But for Conte the problems don’t stop there. The former premier is back in the crosshairs of his internal opponents. The leaders of the M5S, reasoned by several pentastellated parliamentarians, implement this diversionary strategy precisely to try to face the debacle of the Movement in the Rai match.

The internal opponents

The foreign minister was also at the center of attention, Luigi di Maio, who stayed out of the dispute over the RAI appointments. Di Maio had previously met the president Fuortes, unlike Count who was never received. Yet another example of a increasingly marked dualism in the party.

The challenge for the Quirinale

But it is clear that the Rai game worries the former chairman of the council above all because in the background you can see the one for the Quirinale, with the 5 Stars which – we remember – are the largest group in Parliament.

With the League satisfied with the confirmation of two directions, the Democratic Party as well and the satisfaction of the Brothers of Italy as well, new scenarios and balances seem to be designed in view of the vote at the end of January, starting from the trend of the power relations between the premier Draghi and the leaders of the parties that support his government.

So the real game is not in Viale Mazzini, even if it is considered a strategic company. The real knot is that of balances in view of the vote at the end of January which could isolate, or worse, dismember the M5s. This is also why Grillo is silent. And let the two players on the pitch, Conte and Di Maio, play their game.

The variables

There are many variables, few certainties. Certainly Palazzo Chigi showed that he was not particularly under pressure from the former prime minister who until the end tried to replace Monica Maggioni as the guide of Tg1. But above all Conte wanted a substantial relocation for his man, Giuseppe Carboni, who instead remains without a job at the moment.

The subdivision

“The CEO Fuortes had the power to choose and chose to avoid institutional confrontation. On the merits, he had various possibilities and instead chose the old logic of the requests of political parties, choosing however to exclude the party with a relative majority, that representing 11 million voters “. Thus the M5s leader in a statement to the press where he adds: “as M5s we ask ourselves what role the government has played in all this”. This, he added, “is called subdivision“The chorus of controversial voices rises above all from within the movement, with someone who points out how the 5 stars were born to overcome the subdivision of state television and now decide to desert Rai broadcasts because they have not been part of it.

“The logic of the subdivision, which for some time has guided the public service” such as pentastellati “we do not like and we have never liked. We too have found ourselves prisoners of this system that we have denounced many times, but we do not have enough numbers to modify it as we have already proposed. A bill of ours, however, has been hinged on the Commission in the Senate, to intervene on the governance of Rai and finally free it from the influence of politics “.

The other parties

Satisfied instead Matteo Renzi who has always maintained excellent relations both with Monica Maggioni (who also appears in the Open investigation), and with Orfeo (now in charge of the investigations).

He also smiles Matteo Salvini which confirms two directors in league share, Giuliano Sangennaro on Tg2 and Alessandro Casarin on Tgr. Also Brothers of Italy he does not complain after having obtained the direction of Rainews with Paolo Petracca.

The Pd Tg3 confirms (with Simona Sala), Tg1 (with Monica Maggioni) and the in-depth analysis (with Orfeo) even if in the idea of ​​Palazzo Chigi these are appointments to be shared with the pentastellati. An interpretation which, however, is not shared by Conte.

Government staff let it be known that all parties have been heard, including the M5S.
