How did the first day of discussion in the Senate of the Zan bill go?

The League tried to block the discussion by postponing the text to the Justice Committee, and together with the Brothers of Italy supported the unconstitutionality of the bill

The classroom will therefore continue, between 14 and 15 July, the examination of the bill against discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disabilities, presented by the deputy of the Party democrat Alessandro Zan. The parties will then have until July 20 to submit amendments to the law, after which the text must finally be voted on, even if the newspapers speak of the "real risk" that the final vote could be held in September.

A 8 months after its approval in the House, last November 4, the discussion on the Zan bill reached the Senate yesterday, July 13. Less than an hour after the start of the debate, the chairman of the Justice Commission, the Northern League player Andrea Ostellari, tried to get the text back to the commission, where the preliminary voting discussions take place and where the law was blocked for months precisely in because of the obstruction of the right. The session was thus suspended by the President of the Senate Elisabetta Casellati - of Forza Italia - who called the conference of the group leaders, that is of the representatives of the parties. Following a confrontation that the newspapers describe as particularly hard and animated, the conference decided not to accept Ostellari's requests and to proceed with the discussion in the classroom.

In any case, the obstructive practices to slow down parliamentary work were not limited to this. Immediately afterwards, in fact, the classroom had to express itself on the so-called preliminary rulings of constitutionality presented by the Lega and Fratelli d'Italia, with which the two parties asked to stop the discussion of the text because it is in conflict with the Constitution. As expected, the court did not consider it such and the preliminary rulings were rejected with 136 votes against, 124 in favor and 4 abstentions.

These numbers, expressed with a clear vote that is not anonymous, could be misleading and lead to believe in the existence of a solid majority of representatives in favor of the Zan bill. In reality, this is not the case. The preliminary rulings were also rejected by Italia viva, which however said it was in favor of a substantial modification of the text, to reach a compromise with the right, and some amendments are expected. If these were to pass, the bill would return to the Chamber and the whole process of discussion and confrontation would have to start over from the beginning. Furthermore, the actual vote on the text of the law will probably take place by secret ballot, that is, anonymously, and this condition could lead to the defection of some representatives of the parties that support the bill. The doubts mainly concern Iv's support, but also that of some more skeptical senators of the Democratic Party and the 5-star Movement.
