Italy’s Prime Minister Conte resigns, and no one knows what comes next

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 agosto 2019

IT WAS hardly unexpected, yet it felt like a bombshell. Italy’s prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, announced his resignation on August 20th, putting an end to his government, an unlikely coalition between two populist parties: the anti-establishment Five-Star Movement (M5S) and the nationalist Northern League. The government’s collapse had been likely since Matteo Salvini, the League’s leader, withdrew his support for it earlier this month. Indeed, many had seen it as inevitable ever since the coalition was formed 14 months ago.
Mr Conte’s departure pitches Italy into a crisis from which there is no easily foreseeable way out. It could lead to the eurosceptic Mr Salvini achieving his goal of becoming prime minister; in withdrawing his support, he declared he wanted “full powers”. Alternatively, his party could be shut out of government altogether. It will now be up to the president, Sergio Mattarella, to sound out the parties as to whether a new parliamentary majority can be formed. If not, he will have to call an election.
