The question time session Premier
Giorgia Meloni had been due to hold in the Lower House on
December 13 has been postponed.
On Wednesday Minister for Relations with Parliament Luca Ciriani told a meeting of party whips that Meloni would not be able to take questions on that date because "she has to report to the House in view of the European Council" meeting in Brussels on December 14 and 15.
"She keeps running away from parliament," commented Green Left Alliance MP Marco Grimaldi.
"We note that she keeps putting it off," observed centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD) whip Sonia Braga.
The opposition claimed it is the first time a premier has not reported to the Lower House for a year.
