Italy Dep PM Salvini plans Giorgetti as economy & finance minister
The future government must conduct an “important and courageous” fiscal overhaul with someone “whom the world trusts,” like Giancarlo Giorgetti, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini told Corriere della
In an interview published on Wednesday, the leader of the ruling Northern League said the lawmaker and the cabinet undersecretary, his party’s official, should become the minister of economy and finance.
Salvini highlighted disagreements about value-added tax and the fallout with France and Germany about European leadership as hurdles which led to the breakup of the coalition with the Five Star Movement, which
is the senior partner but it has been losing popularity.
The parliament has scheduled a vote of no confidence for next week as the Northern League is seeking snap elections.
Salvini said the plan for so-called citizens’ income would be reassessed it his party wins and cited complaints from business owners that they haven’t been able to increase the number of workers.
On the other hand, rolling back pension reforms stays, he asserted.
The Five Star Movement has already begun to agree to demands from the European Commission and taxes wouldn’t have been cut as much as planned, Salvini claimed.
