Italian Senate to vote on government crisis today - Italianmedia

So, it is reported that, in connection with the situation, the President of the Italian Senate Maria Elisabetta Casellati was appointed on Monday a conference of the leaders of the party groups in the upper house of Parliament, concerning the issue of no confidence to the Prime Minister, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the UNN.

The Italian senate has opted to summon the prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, to parliament on 20 August to respond to the crisis facing his government after one of the coalition's members withdrew its support.

Conte must offer his resignation to Italy's president if the no-confidence motion passes.

"International law states that a rescue takes place in the closest safe port".

With the League's popularity soaring since he became interior minister last year, Salvini wants to carry the momentum to an early national election in October, more than three and a half years ahead of schedule.

Before Tuesday, Salvini's allies worked to get senators to consider the no-confidence question this week.

"Let's vote the cut of 345 parliamentarians and then let's hold an election immediately", Salvini suggested during the noisy Senate session. The political turmoil sparked by the League's challenge has rattled financial markets.

"What is more attractive, more democratic, more dignified than to give the choice back to the people", Salvini told the Senate in a speech constantly interrupted by shouting and heckling from other parties.

The 5-Star Movement chose Conte to be premier after a 2018 election and is weighing whether to ally now with the opposition Democratic Party.

Former Democratic Party (PD) leader Renzi said "I decided to make an appeal to the political forces which has the possibility of being met today". Just a year ago, the anti-establishment 5-Stars rebuffed the center-left Democrats in favor of the anti-migrant League, forging a coalition to bring Europe's first all-populist government into power.

Renzi said he is willing to take that risk.

"We have the chance to turn the page", Renzi said, extending a hand to the Five Star Movement which had been governing with the League and could now potentially form a new administration with the PD.

A tie-up between the Democrats and Five Star is unlikely given that the two have traded insults and have been at odds on nearly every major issue for years.
