The Italian House of Representatives gave confidence to the new government headed by Giuseppe Conte on Monday evening, with a majority of 343 members of the House, and 263 deputies voted against it.
Speaking to the deputies, Giuseppe Conte announced a new phase of reforms aimed at easing the tax burden and adopting a new budget that would allow to avoid a surplus tax. The prime minister stressed that the new government would seek to avoid internal differences.
Meanwhile, the right-wing League and Brotherhood parties staged protests in front of the House of Representatives, while the leader of the “Brothers of Italy”, Giorgia Meloni, accused the new government that it would not serve the interests of Italian people.
Last week, the “Five Stars” movement and the left-wing Democratic Party formed a new coalition following the collapse of the previous coalition against the backdrop of differences between the Five Stars and League.
