Members of Berlusconi's People of Freedom party and opposition politicians had mixed views on the Prime Minister's speech.

Carlo Ciccioli from People of Freedom Party said, "In my opinion the speech was realistic, in reference to the economic issues. Also, it was a very proud and forward-looking speech. Berlusconi wants to retake the reign. The majority is united and we have no problems with numbers. The government is also united."

Marco Rizzo from Popular Left Party said, "The speech by the prime minister does not open new horizons. Italy is completely squashed by the European Union and by the crisis of global capitalism. It is clear that the individual government can do very little.”
