Italy government: Giuseppe Conte again asked to be PM

Giuseppe Conte has been sworn in as prime minister the head of the new populist government, putting an end to the government's gridlock.

Conte has been appointed prime minister and, along with his cabinet, will be sworn in on Friday.

The new deal means he will lead the alliance between the right-wing League and his 5-Star Movement.

The two enraged parties abandoned their joint bid for power, and on Monday Mattarella asked ex-IMF economist Carlo Cottarelli to form a caretaker government created to take Italy to what looked like probable autumn elections.

Italy's Prime Minister-designate Giuseppe Conte talks to the media at the Quirinal Palace in Rome, Italy, May 31, 2018.

Italy's Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni sought member states' support for stemming migrant flows at this week's European Union summit and called for an European Union mission to police Niger's border with Libya.

Prime Minister-designate Giuseppe Conte initially dropped his bid to lead a coalition after President Sergio Mattarella blocked Conte's initial choice for economy minister because of his euroskeptic views, which cast doubt on the ability of parties to form a government.

Issacharoff said that despite "differences of opinion" on how to achieve the aim of hemming in Iran on nuclear matters, "we share the same goal".

The coalition has also said, in a joint policy manifesto signed during their first attempt at a union, that they will push the EU to review the bloc's fiscal rules, which Mr Salvini says have "enslaved" Italians.

Earlier this week, Sergio Mattarella invited former economist Carlo Cottarelli to form a government.

Eurosceptic economist Paolo Savona, 81, who was rejected as finance minister on Sunday, will be responsible for European affairs, according to a cabinet list which Mr Conte read to reporters.

Worldwide markets reacted negatively, however, to Italy's continuing inconclusive political convolutions.

Italy will no longer be "Europe's refugee camp", newly installed Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Monday, promising tough action to reduce migrant arrivals and send back those who have already come to the country.

Salvini campaigned on a pledge to deport about 500,000 migrants from North Africa living illegally in Italy, with the near-bankrupt government subsidizing their care to the tune of billions.

The League says the vast majority of migrants in Italy have no right to refugee status, Italy can not afford to help them and by accepting low pay, they worsen the working conditions of Italians.
