Consultations for new Italian government to begin on Wednesday after PM Conte resigns
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 26 - 01 - 2021

Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has tendered his resignation one week after he survived two confidence votes in parliament.
Conte tendered his resignation to President Sergio Mattarella on Tuesday morning following a Cabinet meeting in which he informed ministers of his intention to do so.
As is customary, Mattarella's office said that he had asked the government to "remain in office to handle current affairs" in a caretaker role.

The president added that he will begin "consultations" with the various political parties, starting with the smallest first, to see whether a new coalition can be formed. p style="border:0px none; box-sizing:inherit;

white-space:normal; word-spacing:0px"The president also has the option of asking another politician, or an outside figure not currently linked to a political party, to try to form a government or call early elections. p style="border:0px none;

vertical-align:initial; white-space:normal; word-spacing:0px"Conte has been under pressure since his governing center-left coalition, which he has led for 16 months, lost its majority in the Senate. p style="border:0px none;

vertical-align:initial; white-space:normal; word-spacing:0px"That came after the party of former PM Matteo Renzi withdrew from the alliance — now comprising of the populist left-wing Five Star Movement (MS5), the center-left Democratic Party and a left-wing parliamentary group — amid disagreements over how to spend COVID-19 recovery fund money. p style="border:0px none;

vertical-align:initial; white-space:normal; word-spacing:0px"President Matterella didn't have to accept Conte's resignation and could ask the prime minister to try to form a more stable coalition. p style="border:0px none;

vertical-align:initial; white-space:normal; word-spacing:0px"Italian media reports on Monday evening suggested this was the outcome the prime minister is hoping for, with Conte relying on a center-right bloc led by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. p style="border:0px none;
