How will Italy emerge from the political crisis provoked in early August by the Minister of the Interior? Strong polls giving the League, his right-wing party, ahead of voting intentions, Matteo Salvini broke his alliance with the 5-star movement and called for early elections. The head of government speaks on Tuesday, August 20 before the Senate.

The solution to the ongoing crisis in Italy will probably not be found this Tuesday, the day Council President Giuseppe Conte must speak in front of the Senate. But this passage in the upper house of Parliament can clarify the balance of power between the parties in favor of early elections and those opposed to it.
The political situation is totally crazy in the peninsula. Matteo Salvini, who wanted to impose a no-confidence motion against the head of government, now realizes he did not play the right card at the right time. He would be ready to step back and kiss his former 5-star allies again. But the movement ensures that everything is over with the " traitor Salvini ".
Giuseppe Conte will he resign?
The Democratic Party, the first opposition force, is divided. The current of Matteo Renzi would be favorable to an agreement with the 5 stars, and even with what remains of Forza Italia, the party of Silvio Berlusconi, to " save Italy from the danger of Salvin ". The troops of the leader of the PD Nicola Zingaretti believe that a return to the polls, because Democrats and populists would not get along well.
Giuseppe Conte, would have prepared a very hard speech against Matteo Salvini. After having pronounced it before the Senate, he could present his resignation to the Head of State, the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella , which would open the way to consultations, either to form a new government or to dissolve the two chambers of Parliament.
