Italy set for early elections after Draghi quits -

 The Italian parliament is set to be dissolved for early elections after Premier Mario Draghi resigned on Thursday following the collapse of his ruling coalition.

President Sergio Mattarella is meeting ower House Speaker Roberto Fico and Senate Speaker Elisabetta Casellati to discuss the arrangements for the dissolution of parliament later on Thursday.

September 25 is seen as a possible date for the vote.
