Storyline


The new cabinet of Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte won the definitive confidence vote in the Senate on Tuesday, with 169 votes in favor, 133 against and five abstentions.

On Monday, the prime minister had received the first confidence from the lower house with a larger majority of votes (343 yes and 263 no), counting on a more comfortable number of supporting lawmakers.

As he had done with deputies the day before, Conte outlined to senators some key points of the political program for the remaining legislature, showing a will to implement a partial shift from the previous government's action.

He promised the cabinet would open the way to a new and hopefully decisive season of reforms, and would move in accordance with the European Union (EU), respecting the EU rules in terms of public accounts, and putting the country's huge public debt on a reduction path again.

"Reform plays the core role in Italy, which we should do everything to fulfill. We hope EU rules could help Italy and the whole Europe promote economic growth, especially the sustainable development," Conte told the senators.

Conte's new ministerial team was sworn in on Sept 5, and forged on the base of a coalition between anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) and center-left Democratic Party (PD).

The previous government -- also led by Conte -- fell on August 20, following the decision of right-wing League leader Matteo Salvini to withdraw his support from the coalition with the M5S in a bid to trigger snap elections.

After winning this second and more sensitive political test, Italy's new cabinet will soon have a major task to focus on during the autumn, namely the new 2020 budget law.

This will have to be in line with EU budget rules, and involve complex negotiation between Rome and Brussels.
