This morning I went to the Quirinale Palace together with Roberta Lombardi and Vito Crimi, the group leaders in the Lower and Upper Houses, to meet the President of the Republic and tell him about the 3 Star MoVement’s position.
The M5S is the party that got the most votes in the recent elections. For this recent it is officially asking for a government position to carry out its programme, and especially to put into effect the measures for revitalising the small and medium sized enterprises, the citizen income and the cuts to the waste in politics. Up until now, in spite of the size of the election success, no institutional role has been given to the M5S. It has not been given the presidency of the Lower House nor of the Senate, that have been the subject of bargaining and haggling and not an expression of the recognition of electoral consensus. Thus the M5S is asking for a full mandate from the President of the Republic so that it can go to Parliament, explain its government programme and ask for a vote of confidence. If the President of the Republic grants this position, the M5S will present its candidate for the office of President of the Council. The M5S believes that this request is an action demonstrating great responsibility in relation to the country. If this request is not accepted, the 5 Star MoVement, as an Opposition entity, will ask for the position of President of the Copasir Committee and of the RAI Watch-guard Committee. The M5S will not express its confidence in political or pseudo-technocratic governments with the help of the familiar "fig leaves" like Grasso. Instead, the M5S will vote on every proposed law if it is based on its programme.
