Italian cabinet remains united despite local elections resultsEuropost
Italy's PM Giuseppe Conte and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini both said on Monday that nothing will change for the government after the centre right won Sunday's regional elections in Abruzzo, ANSA reported.
Salvini's League was the driving force of the centre-right's victory. The League's coalition partners in the government, Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio's 5-Star Movement (M5S), came third with around 20% of the vote after running alone, with a centre-right alliance coming second.
"Nothing changes for the government - no reshuffle, work continues," Interior Minister Salvini told a press conference in the Lower House. "The outcome (in Abruzzo) seems quite clear, but this does not change anything for central government," PM Giuseppe Conte said in the southern city of Campobasso.
