“There is a democracy emergency”: this is the alarm raised by Clare Braga, head of the parliamentary group of the Democratic Party in the Chamber of Deputies in an interview with "Repubblica". The parent company, in fact, contests "the abuse of the emergency decree by the government". “For this reason, together with Francesco Boccia, we sent a letter to the presidents of the Chamber and Senate, Lorenzo Fontana and Ignazio La Russa. We demand an end to this violation of Parliament's rights. Do you know how many decree laws the Meloni government has churned out since the beginning of the legislature? There are 46. And out of 20 they raised the question of trust. We are talking about almost four decrees a month. Half of the laws approved by Parliament are decrees,” said the PD representative. Braga, on the other hand, does not deny that in the past too "there were distortions, but now the situation has radically worsened", given that there is talk of "2,6 decrees per month" in the previous legislature, while "in the even before that they were 1,7".
“The problem is objective, it is not just about the role of the institutions, of Parliament which in this case is mortified, there is also the quality of the laws at stake” given that in several cases “the government has had to intervene to correct the errors". Finally, the leader of the Democratic Party expressed disbelief at the fact that the budget law will be without majority amendments. “Then it remains to be seen whether they will be able to live up to this imposition. But it is absurd that the government decides how Parliament should examine the most important law of the state."
