Italian populist parties demand President’s Impeachment


Italian populist parties Five Star Movement and Northern League, which recently reached an agreement at the behest of President Sergio Mattarella to form a government in order to break the deadlock created by the inconclusive election result, has decided to launch an Impeachment motion against the nominal head of the country as their effort to bring in an ant-EU leader, Paolo Savona, at the helm of the finance ministry has been discouraged and blocked by the head using his veto power citing that the populist move generates apprehensions in the business community of Italy as well as Europe.

According to the Italian constitution, the President has the right to take such a step. As the Italian parliament always goes through the political turmoil, the Italian sitting President very often use this right. So, this right, which has been granted to use in the rarest of rare occasions, has been used several times in the past.

Anyway, as Giuseppe Conte, who has been selected by the populist parties to lead their government, has showed no interest to make any compromises for the business elites on the appointment of Mr Savona, the President has been advised to appoint an Interim Government and call for early elections.

Will any populist party gain a single majority to rule the country in the possible future election?
