Italy's President Mattarella, on May 29, resigned Prime Minister Conte, who had announced his resignation due to a cabinet distrust plan, and ordered him to form a new coalition framework. In the corner of the coalition ruling party, the right-wing “alliance” that submitted the cabinet distrust plan was removed, and the new cabinet is expected to be established in the form of a coalition of the civic political party “5-star movement” and the central opposition party left-wing “Democratic Party” . The dissolution general election was avoided for the time being.
Mr. Mattarella asked the representatives of the ruling and opposition parties about the framework of the coalition government with a majority of power in the parliament, and the five-star movement and the Democratic Party agreed on the coalition. Mr. Mattarella nominated Conte, a jurist and close to the five-star movement, as Prime Minister on the morning of 29th.
However, both parties are attacking violently in the general election last year, and the five-star movement plans to ask whether the coalition agreement is right or wrong by the party vote by the net. In the future, there is a possibility that the two parties will conflict in policy agreements and ministerial personnel.
The Conte Cabinet, which was established in June last year, is often in conflict with the five-star movement and alliance over immigration policies. The allied party deputy prime minister, Salvini, filed a disapproval of the cabinet this month saying "I can't keep coalition anymore," and asked for an early dissolution and general election.
However, Mr. Mattarella was not happy with the general election before the next year's budgeting, which requires EU approval. Mr. Salvini aimed at a single government by the right-wing populist party in the general election against the backdrop of a high party support rate, but he was forced to pursue the government.
