In recent days the Italian foreign minister, Luigi Di Maio, is being borbarded by criticism from all over the country. The question is very simple: the moment of conflict in the Middle Eastern countries.

Although Di Maio has been foreign minister for just 5 months, he is trying to assert his decisions but is criticized every day because the strategic importance of Libya is fundamental for Italy. Although many people speak of economic interests, especially those of Gas, it is also of fundamental importance for the balance of migration, which constantly spills illegal immigrants on the Italian coasts.

It is a painful moment for the government and for Di Maio who have to face various still unresolved issues. In fact, some measures taken are still at the starting point, such as the cut of parliamentarians, who despite the decree having been voted on in the Senate, the request for annulment has been made and in the coming months we will vote in the referendum.

Other important issues are the electoral law, which has been under discussion for a long time and on which no solution has yet been found.
In addition, the electoral law is continuously changed between proportional and majority.

The final issue on the discussion table is that of the withdrawal of motorway concessions for the Benetton family company.
The intention of the revocation began with the tragedy in Genoa with the collapse of the Morandi bridge, in which the Atlantia company had the demerit of not having carried out the right maintenance checks.

The ‘il fatto quotidiano’ (newspaper very close to the “Movimento Cinque stelle”) even criticized Di Maio insinuating that he could step down from both the role of minister and that of leader of the Movement. Although there are storms of criticism, the government does not seem to risk falling.

The government could risk falling if Salvini manages to win the regional elections in Emilia Romagna.
