This week, too, will probably not be the right one to start discussing ius scholae, the reform citizenship which would allow children born in Italy or arrived before the age of 12 to be Italian after a five-year cycle of studies. In recent months, the Democratic Party had announced it as its great battle, “we will approve it before the end of the term”, promised Secretary Enrico Letta. He was supposed to arrive in the Chamber on Thursday, but he is no longer certain: there are decrees to be approved that take precedence, there are 11 items on the agenda and the ius scholae is the eleventh, the tenth is cannabis, they explain. the dem. Technical reasons, in part, but above all political: from the debacle of the Administrations onwards, Matteo Salvini has identified precisely in the two laws on cannabis and ius scholae his controversial objectives to reunite the League. Even threatening the tightness of the government if one of these measures were to pass, confusing the government plan and the parliamentary one, given that these are parliamentary proposals that have nothing to do with the agenda of the Draghi government. In the week that promises to be a new field for confidence in the Aid decree in the Senate, which is not yet known if the M5s will vote, it is unlikely that the Democratic Party will impose itself to schedule and open a new front of attacks on the government. And so, once again, rights will have to wait. According to the latest Istat data, 280 thousand young people would be immediately affected by the reform: once again, politics will say sorry, there are other priorities.
