Italy’s #5Star says not seeking deal with #PD to delay elections

| August 13, 2019

Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement is not seeking a deal with the opposition to delay new elections, but the timing of the vote must be decided by the head of state, party chief Luigi Di Maio (pictured) said on Monday (12 August), writes Gavin Jones.

5-Star’s erstwhile coalition partner, the far-right League, said last week it was quitting the alliance and its leader Matteo Salvini has called for snap elections.

“You will see that Italians will make the League pay for the stab in the back it has dealt Italy,” Di Maio said on Facebook.
