A few more hours and exactly three months will have passed since that last October 22 in which the premier Giorgia Meloni and all his ministers climbed the stairs of the Quirinale and then filed one by one in front of Sergio Mattarella. The institutional ceremony of the oath in the hands of the Head of State represented the pinnacle of glory (at least from the media point of view) of a government seen as the full expression of the popular will, after years of executives based on political agreements, secret negotiations and compromises MPs.
Yet, in the following 90 days of activity, the centre-right executive he has shown that he cannot distance himself much from the work of his predecessors. The most striking example occurred on the occasion of the approval of the budget law: the text approved by the Council of Ministers and then re-emerged – not without many tribulations – from the parliamentary debate for the most part follows the economic and financial direction set and wanted by Mario Draghistarting with the massive allocation of 21 billion euros to counter the higher electricity and gas bills.
Palazzo Chigi, Giorgia Meloni’s choice to raise staff spending
Well, in the last few hours another has risen to the headlines element of continuity between the new government structure and that of the former head of the ECB. We are talking about the allocation prepared by the government for i funds of the insiders of Palazzo Chigi. The executive led by Giorgia Meloni has in fact communicated that “personnel costs will rise to strengthen administrative capacity in relation to the strategic nature of the PNRR”.
To use this formula as clear as protocol was not a second-tier representative of the majority, but directly the Undersecretary to the Presidency of the Council and man of extreme confidence of the premier, that is Antonio Mantovano. His words served to explain to the press the executive’s intentions regarding the forecast budget of 2023 of Palazzo Chigi.
But, in his speech, the government representative wanted to point out that this is not a decision taken to sweeten contracts and salaries of collaborators, but rather a “careful and necessary choice“. And he then pointed out how the same thing happened”also in 2022“: further confirmation of how one cannot stray from the path traced by Mario Draghiat least from a public finance point of view.
Staff of Palazzo Chigi, who will receive the new funds allocated by the government
In fact, going into the details of the government measure, we learn how many expense items included in the official note released by Palazzo Chigi are intended for areas that have a very close link with the real life of citizens. Starting with the increase in funds allocated to Civil protectionwhich in this way sees the allocation dedicated to her grow by ben 253 million euros in the next twelve months.
Continuing from the most important expense to the minor ones, we find a growing budget of 110 million euros for sports policies, money that will be allocated to those projects that have stood out most of all on two fronts: the involvement of young people and people in difficulty through sporting practices and the construction of new plants more innovative ones that replace the obsolete ones that still exist today.
