Salvini's stupidity of the century

at the Latest, if in the Italian Newspapers, the "Toto-ministri" begins, the speculation about a Cabinet office Prior to the first and last names of potential Ministers and the probability of their vocation, may not be the end of a government crisis. Normally, at least. On Wednesday all the leaves tried with the post puzzle. Matches but there were only a few. This time, nothing else is.

Until a few hours before the end of the second exploratory round was still not clear whether it's Cinque point, and the social Democrats would manage to agree on an Alliance. Then Nicola Zingaretti, the Secretary of the Partito Democratico stepped in front of the press and formulated a few unctuous phrases. His party, he said, was ready to support Giuseppe Conte as head of government in a new coalition with the Five stars. For this you would prepare a program of "turning".

Three hours later, it was already evening, it was Luigi Di Maio, of the "Capo politico" of the Five star, who had driven during the negotiations, every day his claims a little more in height. And also Di Maio found, the country gained "a brave man" as Conte. His party was a "post-ideological", it is your only solutions, and that is why this coalition with the social Democrats no caper.

Di Maio tries to separate his political balance of of of Matteo Salvini from Lega , the other Vice-Premier of the now-ending populist Cabinet. For himself he sought no Items, on the contrary, he did not. The Lega have offered him in the past few days, the Post of Prime Minister, he would take the wire despite the break again - a revelation with a lot of political importance. Now it means, Di Maio could be in the new government's defense Minister. Whether he retains the Post of Deputy Prime Minister, is open.

A hurdle remains, even if the new Alliance, in particular, to communicate should, in terms of content and in terms of personnel: the internal debate at the Cinquestelle. Di Maio was the prospect that the party will consult its registered members, be binding if they were agreed with the coalition and on the own platform of "Rousseau". Operated by the private Internet company Casaleggio Associati, what is fired always for speculation about their credibility. The social Democrats hold the procedure, therefore, for an "institutional rudeness", which may even be unconstitutional.

It is governed, who has the majority

is it Unconstitutional? When in Rome government is in crisis, what about the past seven decades, often appeared in the television each constitutional lawyer; it is intended to bring some order in all the confusion. This is not always the case. But at least you recognize them, without the channel display at the bottom of the edge of the screen is your area of expertise: you not roar in fact. Particularly Central for explanations of the passages in the basic law, the circle of the powers of the state President, and those that define the basic setting of the Republic in this crisis. Italy is a parliamentary democracy. Who has a majority in Parliament, ruled the country.

But that doesn't seem all politicians to be equally aware of. Giorgia Meloni, for example, the Head of the post-fascist party, Fratelli d'italia, called after their talks with the head of state, your voters, to carry their discontent on the Piazza. If there is no new elections, the fraud. That said, the in Quirinal Palace, was at least unusual. Some commentators called it "outrageous".

With the laws of a parliamentary democracy Matteo Salvini seemed not to be fully trusted, as he is the break with the Cinque on the way brought, fast new elections demanded for "full powers". It seemed to him to be not noticed, that it is in the Parliament after the elections on 4. March 2018 is also another possible majority, as his Lega, and the Five stars. The astonished, of the Partito Democratico and the Cinque but shortly after the elections, once negotiated. Their coalition is no less legitimate, as it was now broken. Perhaps it is even more in the logic, at least ideologically.

Salvini's Approval rating is sinking rapidly

but need to now listen to yourself in the right camp, he committed a rookie mistake. "In a Moment of mental derangement," wrote the always polemical Vittorio Feltri in the right newspaper Il Giornale, "has but committed the biggest stupidity of the century." He needed a word, the harsh and vulgar than "stupidity". The Fatto Quotidiano, favorite source of information for the Five stars, called it a "spectacular act of self-sabotage".

of Course, the sustainability of such superlatives to argue, just in the wild Italian politics. However, the recent development is very amazing. In the North, the heartland of the Northern League, there is a growing concern, Salvini have forgiven all of the views of regional autonomy and less control lightly. His favor in the people has fallen dramatically. According to the survey of the Corriere della Sera, fell Salvini's popularity from 54 to 36 percent. In less than a month.
