Italian PM Announces Resignation
Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has announced his resignation after his populist government lost the support of a key coalition member, Sky News reports.
The ruling coalition formed by the 5-Star Movement and the League party ceased to exist on August 8. Then the deputy prime minister and leader of the League Matteo Salvini informed Conte about serious disagreements with the allies and demanded the early holding of early elections.
The reason for Salvini's statement was a vote in the Senate on the construction of a high-speed railway between Turin and Lyon. MPs from the right-wing League party voted for the largest infrastructure project along with opposition representatives and rejected the negative resolution.
Conte blamed Salvini for the political crisis and demanded that he explain to the Italians the reasons for the termination of the government.
According to the Italian constitution, the right to dissolve parliament and call new elections belongs to the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella.
