Presidential system would better serve Italy: Premier

A presidential system would serve better Italy, according to the country’s premier on Wednesday.

“We are firmly convinced that Italy’s democracy can become even stronger and more solid through a presidential system,” Giorgia Meloni said in a video speech at the second edition of the Summit for Democracy, organized by US President Joe Biden.

“It is a reform that I consider to be fundamental and that may also represent a powerful measure of economic development,” she said.

Underlining the entangled relationship between economic development and democracy, Meloni said: “The more intense the growth, the more an adequate level of social and economic development is achieved, and more likely a population will choose the path of democracy.”

Likewise, she argued that democracy delivers economic growth and shared prosperity.
