Italian Political Parties Threaten President With Impeachment

President Sergio Mattarella
The leader of Italy's biggest political party has called for the president to be impeached after he vetoed a choice for finance minister.

Luigi Di Maio of the populist Five Star Party said President Sergio Mattarella had caused an "institutional crisis".
Efforts by PM-designate Giuseppe Conte to form a government collapsed on Sunday after Mr Mattarella rejected eurosceptic candidate Paolo Savona.
Five Star had been trying to form a government with the right-wing League.
Italy has been without a government since elections in March because no political group can form a majority.
Mr Conte has now stepped down and correspondents say President Mattarella has been in talks with former IMF economist Carlo Cottarelli, who is tipped as a potential stop-gap prime minister.
 *** The Article 90 said that the president of Italy was not responsible for performance of his presidential duties except in the case of “high treason or violation of the Constitution.” 


  1. Leader of Italian party Lega Matteo Salvini has demanded President Sergio Mattarella call new parliamentary elections after the latter's refusal to support the list of potential government members proposed by the prime ministerial candidate Giuseppe Conte, supported by Lega as well as the Five Star Movement (M5S).

  2. ‘President undermines election results, pushes for his own govt.’ – MP from Italy's M5S
