Rome, July 21: Italy’s Prime Minister Mario Draghi resigned Thursday after a major coalition boycotted a vote of confidence, demonstrating the potential for early elections in Italy and Europe and new uncertainties at key times.
Draghi offered to resign from President Sergio Mattarella at a morning meeting at the Quirinale Palace. Mattarella’s office said the president had “paid attention” to his resignation and asked Draghi’s government to continue in a caretaker manner. Mario Draghi gives the president his resignation as Prime Minister of Italy.
On Thursday, the Dragi administration rejected his appeal that uneasy populist coalition members would unite to ensure the implementation of a European Union-funded pandemic recovery program after the natural term of parliament. After that, it collapsed.
