Here is how the Democratic Party splits on the sale of Fincantieri's two Fremms to Egypt after the government's ok.
There are not only the stomach pains of the Five Stars and Leu's blatant opposition to the sale of the 2 Fremm by Fincantieri to Egypt decided by the Italian government.
Surprisingly, despite the yes of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and the ok of the Democrat Minister of Economy, Roberto Gualtieri, the Democratic Party is imploding due to internal conflicts, to the financial operation of Sace-Cdp.
So much so that Matteo Orfini asks the secretary Nicola Zingaretti if the Pd has really given the go-ahead.
I read that the Democratic Party would be in favor of the sale of military frigates to Egypt. Position that we have never discussed anywhere. And that is very wrong. I hope @nzingaretti will intervene and correct.

In fact, many members of the Democratic Party ask Palazzo Chigi for clarifications on the diplomatic ties that bind Italy to the country governed by al-Sisi, while the 5-star Movement hopes to rethink a "serious event".
A story that is intertwined with the investigations into the crime of Giulio Regeni and with the case of Patrick Zaki, the Egyptian student enrolled at the University of Bologna who has been detained for four months now.
The Bureau of the Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry into the Regeni Murder yesterday met extraordinarily and unanimously decided to urgently convene the Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, for a hearing.
An appointment which – says the chairman of the Erasmo Palazzotto di Leu commission – is considered "preliminary, from a political and institutional point of view, to the continuation of any other investigative activity".
The deputy dem Barbara Pollastrini expresses "deep bitterness" and considers the transfer of the two boats as "a wound": "Patrick Zacki – he recalls – is still being held in prisons and so many opponents to the dictator. For four years Sisi has boycotted the investigation into the murder of Giulio Regeni. Promises and commitments of the institutions seem written on the sand. We cannot be silent ”.
