Le débat sur le choix  des ministres italiens selon Politoco

Finance minister

President Mattarella is supposed to have influence over who is in the government, but political analysts say that if he waves through the appointment of Paolo Savona then his power is all but gone.

Savona, 82, is a former minister and respected economist who helped negotiate the EU’s Maastricht treaty. But of late he’s become a fierce critic of the euro who has called for Italy to leave the single currency, and in a recent book accused Germany of using the euro in place of tanks to gain control of the EU.

“The anti-Brussels axis is settling around the name of Paolo Savona as economy minister,” wrote the left-leaning La Repubblica on Thursday. Yet while officials in Rome urge restraint and point out Savona’s wealth of experience, the man himself has not said a word to reassure investors about his intentions. That is making the markets nervous as they wonder how a minister in favor of leaving the euro could convince investors to buy euro-dominated Italian bonds .However, the League doesn’t want to leave the euro, according to Giulio Sapelli, an economist at the University of Milan who was contacted about being prime minister by both parties before they decided to pick Conte. “When I met [League leader Matteo] Salvini and [his deputy Giancarlo] Giorgetti, they told me they want to renegotiate the treaties and not to leave the euro,” said.

Foreign minister 

The main name being circulated is Giampiero Massolo, 63, a former diplomat who was once described by Francesco Cossiga, a former president, as “a fascist-communist.”

Massolo speaks Russian, which could come in handy as the new government will be distinctly Russophile. In their governing “contract,” the two parties said Russia is “not a military threat” and called for an end to sanctions against Moscow. However, he’s also very old guard, something the two soon-to-be ruling parties are not, and the Rome-based Il Messaggero reported that Savona could get the foreign, not finance, job.

Italy’s officials in Brussels will also be concerned about their futures. However, Italy’s permanent representative in Brussels, Maurizio Massari, could get to stay on as he’s considered a euro-moderate, rather than an enthusiast or a skeptic. The danger for career diplomats is that the new government could do what Matteo Renzi did in 2016 when he appointed a politician, Carlo Calenda, as ambassador to the EU.

Infrastructure minister

This is an interesting portfolio because whoever gets it could upset France (even more than has already happened). At a recent meeting of EU leaders in Sofia, French President Emmanuel Macron said that in Italy he sees “paradoxical and heterogeneous forces” getting a chance to team up. What could make matters even more complicated is a controversial high-speed rail link between Lyon and Turin. The 5Stars are against major new infrastructure projects, mainly for environmental reasons, and the rail link is the focus of their hostility.

Luigi Di Maio, the 5Star leader, has reiterated his intention to scrap the rail link, saying that he’s ready to go to Paris to explain his reasons. But the League takes a different approach to large infrastructure projects. The 5Stars have pushed for one of their members, Laura Castelli, to get the job, but they’ll need to convince the League.

Interior minister

This job has Salvini’s name written all over it — and he could well make his European debut at a meeting of the bloc’s home affairs ministers at the beginning of June.

The program agreed with the 5Stars takes a harsh line on irregular migrants: It wants to round up half a million of them and keep them locked for up to 18 months while their asylum claims are processed. The EU meeting in June will be the last occasion for ministers to discuss the reform of migration rules that EU leaders will have to agree at the end of that month. The current center-left Italian government is already unhappy with the way the reform is shaping up — and Salvini is almost certain to ramp up the objections.

Justice minister

Who gets this job could give an indication of the future of the center-right coalition in Italy. Silvio Berlusconi, the former PM who heads the Forza Italia party, initially gave the green light to a League-5Star coalition but things have since turned nasty, as the governing contract contains strong language on fighting corruption (something Berlusconi knows a lot about: Up until a few weeks ago he could not be prime minister because of a tax fraud conviction).

If the justice minister belongs to the 5Stars — and the name being floated is Alfonso Bonafede — then it would be a sign that the gap between Salvini and Berlusconi is widening. If the job goes to the League’s Giulia Bongiorno, or another League member, then it would show there’s (some) life left in the center-right coalition.
