Conte urges M5s members to back new coalition

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Monday urged members of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement to back a new coalition with the opposition Democratic Party (PD), saying the planned government could transform Italy.

Conte has held a round of talks with both 5-Star and PD leaders looking to stitch together a new administration after his previous government collapsed when the far-right League pulled out in an effort to trigger early elections.

Members of 5-Star will hold a ballot on the party’s internet platform from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (0700 GMT to 1600 GMT) on Tuesday to decide whether the group should join forces with the PD, its traditional foe.
