A prominent Eurosceptic politician has urged his country to exit the EU. These comments came after it had emerged that a chief Europhile is being parachuted in for Rome’s top job. Gianluigi Paragone has slammed calls for Mario Draghi to take the lead a new emergency technocratic government after Giuseppe Conte failed to secure a new majority.
UNN’s Oliver Down understands that the Italian President Sergio Mattarella has summoned the former European Central Bank chief Mr Draghi for talks and looks certain to ask him to form a government of national unity. If Draghi accepts it will need the backing of MPs in Parliament before it was ratified.
Whilst reacting to this news, the founder of Italexit founder, Mr Paragone said: “We will say no. This is the time to say Italexit. This is the moment we have to participate in the great Italexit project. Today you will finally understand, as it happened with Monti. Here and now is the moment to be courageous. Let’s see who will back this Mario Draghi government, put together in the name of the emergency. I have already seen too many of these emergency governments and we saw how it ended. We saw that the final bill of the crisis landed on poor people’s tables”.
Matteo Salvini has said that intentions will be crucial: “We have five priorities, and we will decide according to those. As I said, the point is not the name of the person. He has to tell us what he intends to do”.
