The Italian prime minister, Mario Draghi, will present his resignation this afternoon after the crisis unleashed in his government coalition by one of his main partnersthe Five Star Movement (M5S).

This is how Draghi communicated it today to the components of his Executive in the Council of Ministers, according to what his environment communicated, and he will present his resignation tonight to the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella.

His decision comes after the M5S decided this morning not to vote on a confidence motion in the Senate, distancing itself from the rest of the partners of the coalition of national unity that Draghi has chaired since February 2021.

“I want to announce that this afternoon I will present my resignation to the President of the Republic. Today’s vote in Parliament It is a very significant fact from the political point of view.“, Draghi pointed out before the Council of Ministers, meeting in Rome.

And he added: “The majority of national unity that this Government has sustained since its creation no longer exists and the confidence pact that based the Government’s action has ended“.

Draghi had already warned that I wouldn’t rule without the M5Sdespite the fact that his departure from the coalition did not prevent his continuity, since he continued to have the support of a comfortable parliamentary majority.

The last stumbling block between Draghi and the leader of the M5S, Giuseppe Conte, precisely his predecessor in office, has been a decree with aid against inflation that the “anti-caste” party sees as “insufficient” and that criticizes for including measures such as the financing of a garbage incinerator for the city of Rome .

But before had notorious disagreementsgiven the misgivings of the M5S to continue arming the Ukrainian resistance.

“In these days, on my part, there has been the maximum commitment to follow a common path, even trying to understand the demands that the political forces have put forward to me. As evidenced by the debate and the vote today in Parliament, that effort has been insufficient,” lamented the economist.

Draghi took over the Executive in February 2021 to coping with the pandemic crisisafter the fall of Conte, and he did it with a coalition in which all the parties were in except the extreme Brothers of Italy of Giorgia Meloni.

“In my investiture speech in Parliament I have always said that this government should continue only if it had a clear perspective of being able to put launched the government program that all the political forces had voted for“, he explained.

“This unit has been fundamental to face the challenges of these months. These conditions no longer exist“, Draghi concluded before his ministers, whom he thanked and encouraged to be “proud” of the objectives achieved in “such a difficult time”.

When Draghi resigns before Mattarella, he will be the one who decides the steps to follow, which can range from commissioning someone else to govern or even calling an early election and do not wait for the end of the legislaturein March 2023, as more and more political parties are demanding.

The most interested in a general election is Meloni, who as the only opposition to Draghi It is the one that grows the most in the polls and they already place it as the first force in the country.
