Conte Could Helm New Italy Gov’t Aimed at Thwarting Salvini

August 29, 2019

ROME — Italy’s president will meet with just-resigned premier Giuseppe Conte after the populist 5-Star Movement and center-left Democrats tapped him to lead a new government that aims to block nationalist League leader Matteo Salvini’s power grab.

During the meeting Thursday, President Sergio Mattarella is expected to give Conte a mandate to explore forming a new government majority backed by lawmakers in the 5-Star Movement and Democratic Party — until this crisis staunch political foes who have long traded insults.

The two parties banded together to thwart Salvini’s bungled attempt to grab power when he unexpectedly withdrew support for the foundering League-5-Star government to seek early elections.

The new alliance appears to forestall elections. But even if Conte cobbles together a government, political analysts warn it is unlikely to last.
