Italy's 5-Star, League on Verge of Government Deal; Markets Shudder

Italy's 5-Star, League on Verge of Government Deal; Markets Shudder

Italy's two largest parties, the far-right League and anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, both appeared to reject a call by President Sergio Mattarella to form a "neutral government", saying early elections were preferable.

Five-Star party members will be asked to approve on an online vote the German-style five-year "contract of government" being hammered out with the League, Five-Star leader Di Maio has said.

"The more they insult us, the more they threaten us, the more they blackmail us, the more desire I have to embark on this challenge", he said.

"From Europe we have the umpteenth unacceptable interference (...); now is the time for legality, security and push-backs", Salvini said. "With courage we will succeed in returning citizens their rights and returning Italy to her rightful place on the European stage".

EU Commission vice-president Jyrki Katainen had warned on Tuesday against the formation of a government that might disregard the terms of the EU's stability and growth pact.

Second British rugby player dies after falling ill during Sri Lanka tour
Durham City Rugby Club, which oversees the team, said in a statement the pair suffered "non-rugby related breathing problems". Mr Howard's post-mortem examination did not reveal any existing injury or illness that might have caused his death.

Di Maio shrugged off such warnings as the protests of "Eurocrats that nobody elected". Salvini wants the policy line on migration to get tougher. We have taken in and looked after too many (migrants).

With Italy now writing the rulebook to its future relationship with the EU, Brussels has been left powerless to push back.

They also share an anti-establishment sentiment that has taken root in Italy but which has worldwide parallels such as Britain's vote to leave the European Union and the USA election of President Donald Trump.

Still, the two leaders haven't said yet who they'll nominate as prime minister - and they say it won't be announced until they have an agreement on policies.
