Italy’s 5-Star Movement asks for another 24 hours to form a new government

President Sergio Mattarella’s press office said Wednesday that the League and the 5-Star Movement (M5S) has asked for another 24 hours for talks on a possible agreement for a new government.
The head of State had been expected later on Wednesday to give someone a mandate to someone to form a “neutral” technocrat executive after a third round of formal political consultation failed to produce a breakthrough to the deadlock that followed Italy’s inconclusive March general election.
League leader Matteo Salvini and M5S leader Luigi Di Maio met for face-to-face talks on Wednesday, sources said.
