Fontana, stop the last minute amendments.  The government reduces the use of decree laws

«The one on the decree laws is a battle that we try to do. We understand the government's needs, but we must try to protect the prerogatives of parliamentarians. We often ask the government to reduce the decree-laws to make them an important but urgent tool to leave more room for bills or parliamentary initiatives". This was stated by the Speaker of the Chamber Lorenzo Fontana at the Ventaglio ceremony, the traditional appointment with the parliamentary press which took place in the Sala del Mappamondo in Montecitorio. The first fan ceremony of the legislature, the first after the reduction of deputies from 630 to 400.

Stop the last minute and omnibus amendments

«Even the amendments to the decrees often arrive at the last minute and create difficulties in the commissions. We understand the government's difficulties, but we also ask that the amendments that come to the decree-laws comply with the text. In the new regulation on amendments we will be more stringent, and the reform will also concern the aspects of admissibility of the amendments", said Fontana.

Justice, there is no clash between politics and the judiciary

Speaking of justice, Fontana hoped «that there should be no clashes between politics and the judiciary, there must be a balance of powers, not a clash of powers. Also because if there is a clash of powers then unfortunately, more often than not, my vice-presidents and I get in the way because that tension is created in the Chamber which does not help at work. I hope that the government can make the reforms but that they are shared as much as possible and do not create clashes between powers".

In September we will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Constitution

«We will organize important events for the 75th anniversary of the Constitution. On September 19, in the presence of the Head of State, there will be a moment with Andrea Bocelli and Bebe Vio: it will be an attempt to make an inclusive anniversary,” said the Speaker of the Chamber speaking to the parliamentary press at the fan ceremony. "We will also do many things with the Italian Blind Union, so that it really is a celebration for all Italians, even for those with disabilities".

Italy A more stable country, but the future is never certain

«Compared to what history was for a certain period - Fontana underlined - at the moment Italy is the most stable country, compared to many years of instability, at a European level. Considering also what happened in Spain, Italy currently has a majority at government and parliamentary level that is more stable than many other European countries, especially in parliament. France has difficulties, we have seen Spain, Germany seems to me not doing very well, so we have gone from being the most unstable to one of the most stable countries in Europe. But then the future is never certain, better not to talk about it too much».
