The sixth ballot for the election of the new Italian president of the republic is in progress, which, however, is not expected to prove decisive. In anticipation of tomorrow’s vote, meanwhile, meetings of political leaders continue.
Recently, the secretary of the League, Matteo Salvini, had a meeting with the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, the leader of the Five Stars, Giuseppe Conte, and the secretary of the center-left, Enrico Letta. According to Italian public television Rai, after the meeting, Leta said he was “optimistic”.
Everything shows that a substantial effort is finally being made, with the aim of finding a widely accepted candidacy.
The names that are coming back to the fore at this stage, according to Rai, are those of Mario Draghi, the current president of the republic Sergio Matarella (for a second term) but also of the centrist, former speaker of parliament, Pierferdinado Casini.
In about an hour, the leaders of the country’s largest political parties are expected to meet again to resume the dialogue that began earlier.
