Prime minister of Italy, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte of has resigned on Tuesday after weeks of political infighting, thrusting the country into renewed instability as the coronavirus pandemic ravages lives and livelihoods.
Mr. Conte met with his cabinet early Tuesday before informing President Sergio Mattarella of his resignation.
Mr. Mattarella will hold consultations with parliamentary leaders on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning to determine whether Mr. Conte or someone else could garner enough support to govern, or whether early elections would be the only option.
Mr. Conte stepped down after failing to cobble together enough senators to support his government.
Two weeks ago, he lost the support of Italia Viva, the political party of former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
At the top of Mr. Renzi’s list of grievances was Mr. Conte’s management of the pandemic, which he said bypassed Parliament, allowing decisions to be based on the reports of unelected task forces.
