Italian PM Draghi confirms resignation

Mario Draghi news

The prime minister will remain in a caretaker role until a new government is formed.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi resigned on Thursday after the ruling coalition collapsed. Draghi’s government will remain as a caretaker until a new one is formed, a statement from the president’s office says.

Draghi met with President Sergio Mattarella to tender his resignation. The government will continue to work for now to “deal with current affairs,” the office reported after the meeting.

The prime minister wanted to resign last week, but Mattarella blocked the move in a last-ditch effort to save the coalition.

The parliament is now set to be dissolved, paving the way for a snap election, according to Italy’s ANSA news agency.

Draghi, who was appointed PM in February 2021, survived a no-confidence vote in the Senate, the upper house of Italy’s parliament, on Wednesday, but three of the coalition parties boycotted the vote. This meant that Draghi’s government had lost the parliamentary majority, and the coalition was no longer workable.

  1. It is called “Zelensky Curse”. Whoever went to see him in Kiev are cursed. Draghi joins the ranks of BoJo and others who lost power in the last few months.

  2. Little bit of musical chairs happening in global politics. Don’t worry, it’s just to keep up appearances, to pretend democracy still exists.

    The next WEF puppet they install will be a hundred times worse.

    Just ask the people in Sri Lanka – their new president won’t let them purchase petrol without first scanning a tracking app ????
