Italian PM Conte resigns

Conte’s move preempted a no-confidence vote that had been expected to take place, after Matteo Salvini, leader of the populist far-right League party and Italy's interior minister, called for it.


Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced his resignation Tuesday. The announcement set the country on an uncertain political course that could lead to a snap election or a new governing alliance.

Conte’s move preempted a no-confidence vote that had been expected to take place, after Matteo Salvini, leader of the populist far-right League party and Italy’s interior minister, called for it.

“This government ends here,” Conte said.

In response, Salvini said that he would “do what I did all over again,” adding, “I am a free man. I am not afraid of the judgment of Italians.”

Conte’s resignation will not automatically trigger a snap election, the matter is now up to President Sergio Mattarella.
