Thousands of people joined a rally in Rome on Friday, in support of Italian President Sergio Mattarella. On Sunday, Mattarella refused to approve the appointment of Eurosceptic Paolo Savona as Economy Minister, prompting the collapse of the Five Star (M5S)-League government talks. Mattarella's veto was met with heavy criticism among supporters of the two populist parties. M5S leader Luigi Di... Еще Maio also called for the impeachment of Mattarella. However, in a surprise twist, the two populist parties renewed the coalition talks, with Conte eventually accepting a new premiership mandate. Mattarella was then presented with a revised list of ministers, where Savona to serve as Minister of European Affairs, which the Italian president accepted. The new Italian government, led by Giuseppe Conte, was sworn in earlier in the day. Conte was chosen to take the position of Prime Minister by the coalition formed between Italy's two largest parties: League, led by Matteo Salvini, and Five Star Movement (M5S), led by Luigi di Maio. Salvini will be the new Minister of Interior, while Di Maio will be the new Minister of Labour and Economic Development. Both will also serve as Vice-Prime Ministers. 18 ministers took oath of office to form a government coalition of the M5S and the League party, ending months of political turmoil.
