Italy’s leadership crisis has experienced a dramatic turn, as Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte returned to patch things together.
In the past two weeks, Italy was confronted with a number of challenges when opposition parties could not reach an agreement on the future of its leadership.This follows the resignation of Conte, who left the government in limbo and near collapse.
His resignation followed a decision by the far-right League party to present a no-confidence motion in the 14-month old coalition government.
In a speech before the Italian Senate, Conte blamed his deputy prime minister, Matteo Salvini for almost collapsing the Italian government.
He further accused him of being irresponsible and putting “his own interests and those of his party” ahead of Italy’s, at the risk of political and financial instability.
