“At the sanctioning level, we have introduced a fine from 400 to 3000 euros“which follows the sanctions for the” violation of the highway code “. The Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, announces it at a press conference at Palazzo Chigi at the end of the CDM which has passed a new decree on the coronavirus emergency. But in the case of violation of emergency rules “there is no administrative stoppage“for cars.
It is “a decree that rearranges the measures of this phase” explains the premier, who “every 15 days he will “report” to Parliament on the measures taken“starting on Wednesday when he will be in the Chamber at 6 pm for information and on Thursday at 10 in the Senate.
“We have regulated relations between government activities and Parliament in a more precise and transparent way – he underlines – Every decree, every government initiative will be sent to the presidents of the chambers“.
“We have linearly regulated the interventions of the government and the regions – he specifies – Let the presidents of the regions also be able to take more restrictive measures within their competence, stricter and obviously the coordination function remains, of homogeneity that is assured to the whole national territory by our interventions “.
Regarding the relationship with the social partners, “the unions know that with them the door of Palazzo Chigi and the various ministries that are concerned is always open. I work with them – highlights the Prime Minister – I am not saying that it is a daily job but almost. I believe that the best way to make decisions is to compare with all the social partners, but at the same time I always say that responsibility for the decision lies with the government, also because we cannot think of introducing codecision procedures. The concertation of the nineties is a historical period that we must consider outdated. “And” I hope that there is no strike, at this moment the country cannot afford it. “Conte ensures that”the food supply chain will be absolutely guaranteed and I can guarantee that the refueling will be assured“.
As for the measures put in place, the premier stresses that “the police are doing a careful monitoring but I must say that the vast majority of citizens are conforming to the new rules and new habits of life. This must make us all particularly proud “. Regarding the use of the military, “the use of the Army is welcome, but public order is not maintained by giving the image of a militarization of the country. We are already using the Army ”, such as the patrols of Operation Safe Roads which are integrating the work of the police.
“It is a very difficult test. In these days forced to stay at home, we will have more time to reflect on our life – observes the Prime Minister – And we will learn from it ”. In addition,” I am convinced that this very difficult test will make us better. This period is also an opportunity to make reflections that we usually don’t do because we are caught up in the hectic pace of everyday life.Italy has never faced such problems ”.
“We are experiencing a dramatic situation but we are reacting effectively to what the initial situation was, ” he notes.Deciding to close entire sectors by identifying point by point which are the essential and non-essential activities is a very complicated operation – points out – Italy has never faced problems of this type. We are making adjustments, it is a complicated thing, because the production chains are very integrated “.
The prime minister then talks about the circulated draft, which is “a previous and outdated version. Throughout the morning and then in the CDM we made further changes and I would like to clarify, given that there has been some debate over whether the emergency would be extended until July 31, 2020 with this decree, that there is nothing true. Absolutely not”.
“I would like to remind you that when we adopted the first measure at the end of January we deliberated the national state of emergency for a period of 6 months, until 31 July 2020. This does not mean that the restrictive measures that are in force will be extended until 31 July “makes clear the Prime Minister. “We are ready at any moment, and I hope very soon, to loosen the grip of the restrictive measures, to overcome them and we are confident and confident that well before that deadline”, that is on July 31st, “we will be able to return to our life habits” .
