ITALY TO UNDERGO FRESH ELECTIONS AS COALITION TALKS FAIL

Italy’s coalition-building talks have failed, leaving the country facing fresh elections or a neutral caretaker government until the end of the year.

President Sergio Mattarella said yesterday that those were the only two options left after a third round of negotiations were unsuccessful.

No single party or alliance won a majority in the March general election.

The most influential parties, Five Star and The League, favour a new vote in July where President Mattarella has the final say.
