Third Mandate Under Scrutiny as Opposition Analyzes Moves, PD’s Voting Doubts Emerge

The Democratic Party is currently grappling with internal tensions related to the issue of exceeding the two-term limit for governors and mayors. There is a clear divide within the party, with many parliamentarians being against this proposal, while some significant administrators are in favor. The party has made it clear that it will not support the League’s amendment to allow exceeding the two-term limit.

Furthermore, the Democratic Party has stated that the issue of term limits should not be dealt with through the elections decree. Instead, they suggest that this issue should be part of a larger reform of the consolidated text of local authorities. The party is eager to consider the issue on its merits, but insists that the right needs to clarify its position first.

The Democratic Party has expressed concern that the Senate commission meeting could devolve into a competition between FdI and Lega. They have no intention of getting involved in this conflict and will let the two parties bear the consequences. The Democratic Party is also considering whether to vote against the amendment or to leave the chamber altogether.

There are differing opinions within the party on this issue. Some members are against leaving the chamber, while others are inclined to vote against the amendment. The latter option is favored by a large portion of the opposition, including M5s and Avs. Voting together with these groups would demonstrate unity among the minority parties.

The 5 Star Movement has always been steadfast in its commitment to limiting mandates, even extending this principle to its own parliamentarians. Beppe Grillo, the founder of the Movement, is currently campaigning to make this a state law. The Conte line has expressed its opposition to the amendment, stating that they are more concerned with the future of Italian workers than with the future of political figures.

Avs also strongly opposes the amendment. They have reportedly discussed a common strategy with the Democratic Party, but the internal conflicts within the latter have led Avs to adopt an autonomous approach. They plan to vote against the amendment in the commission. Italia viva group leader in the Senate, Enrico Borghi, has proposed a joint meeting of the minority parties in an attempt to unite them against the majority. However, Democratic Party sources are skeptical about the feasibility of this plan, noting that the numbers don’t add up.
