A decision made in operation anti-Covid but also to simplify procedures and reduce voting times, because the fifty regional councilors will speak at the same time (and not one at a time, called to the appropriate booth). The meeting of the assembly is convened for January 18: together with the Tuscany, that of Stefano Bonaccini will be the last Region to designate the “great electors” who will take part in the votes of the Parliament in joint session starting January 24 at 3 pm.

Not only that: it simplifies procedures, reduces voting times, as all directors can vote simultaneously – and no longer on call one at a time by going to the appropriate ‘voting booth’ – and allows you to express your preferences either by choosing from a list (fifty regional Councilors) or by freely indicating the names.

So far, 17 out of 20 regions have chosen delegates: in addition to Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany, the Trentino Alto Adige (will vote on 17). In the votes there were some twists and real political cases, such as the one that broke out in Sicily, where the governor Nello Musumeci it received far fewer votes than expected resulting only third in order of preferences (and for this he first threatened the resignation, then the cancellation of the junta). In Lombardy, on the other hand, the 5-star passed by surprise Dario Violi, overcoming – despite the smaller size of the group – the candidate of the Democratic Party Fabio Pizzul. At the moment the “bag” of the electors includes 15 representatives of the Democratic Party, 11 of the Lega, 8 of Forza Italia, 5 of the Brothers of Italy, 4 of the 5-star Movement and 6 scattered among other political forces.
