Leader of Five Star Movement (M5S) Luigi Di Maio affirmed that he never sought a European Union exit for Italy, speaking during a rally in Naples on Tuesday, and following the collapse of his efforts to form a government,. “If stock markets have the fear of an Italexit happening, that’s because somebody said we wanted to leave the Euro currency. But this has never been the case,” he stated... Еще. “We have been stopped when we were about to put our hands where the money is, at European tables, not to leave the Euro, not to leave Europe. These are lies,” he added. “I hope we can get back to the vote as early as possible. This is a very difficult situation for our country,” regretted Di Maio. The attempt of the would-be coalition parties, M5S and the League, to form a cabinet failed after the country’s president Sergio Mattarella did not accept their eurosceptic pick as economy minister, saying that he might put Italy's relationship with the EU at risk.
