Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi attempted to resign last week and was rejected by the president. He has since recognized that the public has a large amount of support for him and the coalition government, leading him to call fora new pact to keep the unity government from collapsing.
He is calling for a completely new agreement between Italy’s Senate. He had lost the support of the Five Star party in a confidence vote last week and tendered his resignation immediately after. President Sergio Mattarella asked him to address parliament this week rather than immediately resign. There will be a confidence vote on Wednesday evening, one Mr Draghi is expected to win.
