Degni, Meloni’s attack on the left: “Super parties? They pretend to be militants”

Marcello Degni’s social media outing wasn’t exactly a shining demonstration of professionalism and opportunity. And the “daring” with which the councilor of the Court of Auditors “considered it normal” to take positions so adverse to the national interest – Giorgia Meloni vehemently supported it in her press conference at the end/beginning of the year – “is the most serious thing ever. The Prime Minister then thundered against the left, guilty of not having said a word about such a relevant fact as a member of a judicial body, theoretically third party in political orientation, which expresses itself in an angry manner against the Government in office: “I was very impressed by the fact that there was no one on the left to say anything, starting with Paolo Gentiloni who appointed him. I have to ask him if it is normal for people appointed by them to impartial positions to pretend to be political activists.” There was also a blow against the leader of the Democratic Party, who was also tagged in the tweet that triggered the Degni case: “I await a response from Elly Schlein on this matter.”

But let’s recap a little what happened on the sidelines of the “indicted” tweet of December 30, in which the economist denounced the role of the Democratic Party in the final approval of the financial package with the following statements: “Opportunity lost. There were conditions for obstructionism and provisional exercise. We could have made them drool with rage over the so-called armored maneuver, and instead we made them recite Marinetti.” In the first few hours that followed, some members of the majority criticized Degni’s words, and the press office of the Court of Auditors informed that “the issue will be analyzed urgently at the next meeting of the Presidency Council to assess competencies”, which will be held on the afternoon of January 4th.

The fate of Marcello Degni in his role as consultant to the body will be known following the meeting’s verdict. At the press conference, Meloni didn’t want to go too far in this regard, leaving the task of deliberating to the competent people: “It’s not up to me to say what could happen. I consider it serious that a judge from the Court of Auditors expects Italy to enter into provisional operation”. However, not the slightest sign of regret was received from the protagonist of the story. In fact, in his interview with La Stampa he justified his anti-government position. Prime Minister Meloni passed the ball to the Court of Auditors: the next few hours will be crucial in determining the councilor’s future.
