The Italian “Prime Minister Conte’s resignation opens a new phase, where the master of the game will be President Mattarella,” Paolo Pizzoli, Senior Economist at ING Bank noted.
“President Mattarella accepted his resignation, and asked him to stay for current affairs, as it normally happens.’
“We see three main options ahead. The first option which might be explored is that of a new mandate for a Conte 3.0 government.”
“We suspect that this solution would aim at coopting a new group of “willing” MPs form the ranks of pro-European moderates in the opposition under a common flag to expand the majority, but could hardly do without the support of Renzi’s Italia Viva.“
“A success in this sense would imply the end of cross-vetoing between former coalition partners, under the influence of President Mattarella’s moral suasion, reinforced at this stage by the presidency’s constitutional role in government crises.”
