Italy's Government Crisis: An Update (Luciano Dondero, Italy, 08/29/19 4:45 am)

A quick update on the Italian government crisis:

President Mattarella held a new round of consultations with a view toward establishing a new cabinet. On Tuesday after meeting with the speaker of the Senate and of the Chamber of Deputies, he meet the smaller groups, and yesterday with the leading figures of the main parties represented in Parliament.

It seems we are going toward a "Conte-bis," with a "yellow-red" majority and supported by other minor parties.  Briefly, this is what happened on Monday night: Zingaretti, PD secretary and Di Maio, formally the "political leader of the M5S" met with Conte, and sealed an agreement to keep him at Palazzo Chigi. This agreement is not completely set, as a few bits and pieces still need fixing (eg. the list of ministers, and also who is going to be deputy Prime Minister), but is seems unlikely that the agreement will blow up in everybody's face at this point in time.

Today Mattarella should meet with Conte, and invite him to form a new cabinet, if he receives sufficient guarantees that the new coalition could be established and not repeat last year's flop. More info is to be found in my followup post, "The Italian political scene in 2018-19."

JE comments:   So Conte has resigned in order to be replaced by...Conte.  You need a competent guide to understand Italian politics, and we've found the ideal one in Luciano Dondero.  (Admittedly, we Americans have to explain our politics every four years:  How do you become president when the other candidate gets more votes?)
