to interpret the expectations and the hopes of our fellow citizens. and if parents, if they're not, they're going through that in journalist sima gupta has been following the story for us in rome with all the latest details. so sima, there's been a real need for it's the to find some stability, but was this a last resort? well, it seemed to be the only resort at this stage in terms of the only one that all political factions, whether the center, right, or the center left, felt that they could get behind. i mean, this boating process went through 6 days, 8 rounds of voting before the a t o president was re elected. it's $759.00 volts. are right after he was passed that 500 by threshold that made him president. there was a long applause in the parliament as people finally found their solution. mario
driving the prime minister, releasing a statement after the election saying it was splendid news for italians. he thanked the president and said that the strong parliament that parliamentary backing showed that he was the right man for the jobs and pretty much status for if you, like i said, you're martha rella as president and mario drug remaining in his roles. prime minister. what does material as, when mean for italy when we look at things politically and economically? well, in terms of economically and politically and in terms of the social situation, it leaves what potentially new stability. and that's what, perhaps, internationally, that's an international community will be welcoming for, i'm italian themselves. they want to see that the ability, particularly when it comes to putting in place the much needed the forms are required to lead reforms that are necessary in order to gain access to the u.
cobit recovery funds that billions of euros that it needs to spec to, to get from the european union, and that they expected stability. they want to see those reforms put in place and model drug the, they believe is the man to do it. so in that sense, it is a better situation, but in terms of the situation or lead to key, perhaps one can see that the current coalition is weakened by this process. the situation in terms of the back and forth of suggesting candidates, not getting the support of tensions in voting blank votes to create more time for discussion. all of that has not helped the civility within this very broad coalition that is in power at the moment. a coalition that will end it's legislature in 2023 and you taught from us i live at this very quickly. maybe we can address that again. where does this leave things when it comes to mario druggie,
who has expressed interest himself in wanting to be president? well, at the moment of surgeon martha rella is elected. it's a 7 year term and he will be in that situation and mario druggie continues his role as the interim president. interesting to note that martha rella even touched on this in his little short speech at the end of this election process in which he said that with the ongoing cobit 19 crisis that the countries facing he can army and social difficulties, stability is really important. but the political landscape has changed. perhaps we may see some changes in the cabinet. for mister druggie as the different political parties are expected to perhaps express their preferences, we'll have to see what comes out in the coming days and weeks. but mr. martha rella will be sworn in in the later this week in the ceremony as you'll be taking on this role again for another 7 years sima after for us in wrong. thank you.
