After 88 days of negotiations and after agreeing on a “government contract” based on massive public spending raise and tax cuts, the far-right League and the populist 5 Stars movement have designated Giuseppe Conte as prime minister for the second time in a week. An academic with no political experience, Conte will be leading a 18-minister government.

Eurosceptic economist Paolo Savona, whose designation as the Economy minister in a previous attempt by Conte to form the government was rejected by the Italian president Sergio Mattarella, is the new minister for European affairs.
