On migrants & Moscow, Italy's new foreign policy makes waves
Matteo Salvini leader of the League speaks to the press on 14 May
06 June, 2018, 02:22
The initial failure of Conte to form a government had alarmed financial markets, which feared a quick return to the polls that risked being tantamount to a plebiscite on Italy's keeping the euro currency.
"All the conditions have been fulfilled for a political, Five Star and League government", said Matteo Salvini (the League leader) and Luigi Di Maio (leader of M5S), in a joint statement. The 5-Stars, meanwhile, have fostered similar relationships. The main obstacle was the president's opposition to the candidacy of anti-Euro Paolo Savona to head the Economy Ministry.
The new government features 18 ministers, including five women. "Send them home" will be one of our top priorities", he said.
Soros' comments, delivered Sunday at an economic forum in northern Italy, focused attention on the pro-Moscow agenda of Italy's new euroskeptic League and 5-Star Movement government.
Earlier, Salvini joined Premier Giuseppe Conte and the rest of the newly sworn-in Cabinet to view the Republic Day parade.
Emphasizing their "anti-establishment" claim, 5-Star ministers, who hold seven of the Cabinet posts, took a single taxi van to the Quirinal Palace.
The government will be formally handed over later on Friday and will face a confidence vote later this week, which given the makeup of Parliament is likely to pass. Upon being named to the post, he said he would be "a lawyer for the [Italian] people", and said his team would work "to improve the quality of the lives of all Italians". My concern is the future of asylum seekers, people who are eligible for a refugee status.
Salvini and Soros have always been at odds, particularly over migration policy.
The League has also faced widespread criticism for xenophobic, anti-immigrant policies reminiscent of those forwarded by far-right parties across Europe, such as Germany's AfD and the National Front in France.
Another Cabinet pick seen as reassuring to those concerned the populists could set Italy drifting from its strong ties with the European Union is Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi.
Salvini, who wants to open a migrant detention and deportation centre in every Italian region, later tweeted: "Either Europe gives us a hand in making our country secure, or we will choose other methods".
The ceremony brought long sought-after stability to the country following months of political drama that had anxious financial markets and Italy's European Union partners.
European Council President Donald Tusk congratulated Conte, but warned the incoming populists that the EU needed "unity and solidarity more than ever".
She pointed out that European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker recently called for the EU to find avenues where it can work with Russian Federation, saying "this Russia-bashing has to be brought to an end".
