On 30th January 2022, Populism in Action’s Principal Investigator Prof. Daniele Albertazzi was quoted in an article by the Financial Times’ Rome Correspondent Amy Kazmin.
The article entitled “Draghi gains vital time for policy revamp after Italy re-elects Mattarella as president” explores the likely short to medium effects of Sergio Mattarella’s reelection as President of Italy.
Commenting on the implications of this development for the government of Italy Prof. Albertazzi said:
“The road ahead is going to be uphill, not downhill…. I’ve never believed that just because you are Draghi you can do whatever you like. He is in the hands of political parties. They have political power, and they are themselves divided — the right against the left, factions against factions. All of this is going to create chaos.”
