Meloni says clear delays in NRRP

Failure not down to us but will be attributed to us says next PM

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 5 - Prospective next Italian premier Giorgia Meloni said Wednesday there were clear delays in the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) which would be blamed on her government by those who had caused them.

He statement contradicted one from outgoing Premier Mario

Draghi, who said there were no delays in the plan's implementation.
He said that if there were, the European Commission would not keep on issuing the money for the plan, which will amount to nearly 200 billion euros once completed.

    "We inherit a difficult situation: the delays in the NRRP are evident and hard to make up for and we are aware that it will be a failure that will not be down to us but which will be attributed to us also by those who determined it," Meloni told the first post-election meeting of the exevutive of her rightwing Brothers of Italy (FdI) party.

Draghi said 

he was confident Meloni's administration would enact the plan with the same effectiveness as his own.
"The government has adopted all the measures necessary to favour an effective implementation of the Plan. Now it is up to the next government to continue the work of implementation, and I'm certain that it will be carried out with the same force and efficacy".
Draghi said the challenge facing Meloni would be implementing a new chapter of the NRRP to tackle the energy crisis.
The REPowerEU Plan, designed to ensure energy autonomy from Russia with the insertion of a new chapter in the national NRRPs, represents the challenge for the next few months," he said.
