AFP / Alberto Pizzoli The Italian Parliament meets Monday to elect a new President of the Republic, Prestigious Post for which Prime Minister Mario Draghi seems favorite, as part of a game of musical chairs threatening the survival of the executive. Ex-Prime Minister billionaire Silvio Berlusconi, 85, the most aggressive in his campaign, going to boast of his sulphurous evenings "Bunga Bunga", finally thrown the sponge Saturday , giving the opportunity to His right allies to choose a less clevy candidate. But no sign of consensus was visible despite the scenes negotiations this weekend. During his septennat, the president, the essentially honorary role, however, has considerable power in the event of a political crisis - including Italy is customary - whether it is to dissolve Parliament, to choose the Prime Minister or to refuse mandates to fragile coalitions. Complex voting system It is notoriously difficult to predict the winner of this secret ballot election - a bumpback-based voting system, which is more than a thousand deputies, senators and regional elected representatives.

While Italy has more than ever need for stability, parties belonging to the disparate coalition supporting Mr. Draghi are already in order of battle for next year's legislative. And chaos could endanger the introduction of the Italian steering wheel of the post-Covid European stimulus plan.

Draghi Guarantor of the unity of the country appointed by the outgoing President Sergio Mattella in February 2021, Mr. Draghi managed to maintain the unity of a government composed of almost all the Italian political parties, while rechancing economic growth. He also oversaw the key reforms required in exchange for the Funds of the EU Recovery Plan, of which Rome is the main beneficiary with about 200 billion euros. International investors fear that Italy, riddled with debt, take behind the tight calendar of reforms in case Mr. Draghi leaves his prime minister, while the country fights against a new wave of CVIV-19. disrupting the recovery after the recession of 2020 Most experts believe that Mr. Draghi would be better positioned as President to ensure political stability and good relations with Brussels, especially if the right and the far right won the elections planned in 2023. The first round of the election must begin Monday at 1 pm in the Chamber of Deputies. The result should be known in the evening. Due to the safety measures related to the Covid , each round will take a day and, as the tradition does, there are theoretically no official candidates. Hospitalized Berlusconi If Mr. Draghi remains prime minister, many other names circulate for the position of Head of State, including those of the European Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni, former Socialist Prime Minister Giuliano Amato or the Minister of Justice Marta Cartabia, who would be the first president woman. Observers are not waiting for a final result before Thursday, where the fourth round, for which it takes the absolute majority to win, and not two-thirds of voices and previous towers. As for Silvio Berlusconi, he was back to the hospital on Sunday, after withdrawing from the meaning of "national responsibility", according to him. His hope of moving to the presidential palace of the quirinal had little chance of succeeding, especially because of the judicial consequences of his evenings "Bunga Bunga" - Orgies he organized in a luxurious villa with prostitutes.
