Fury at Italian president’s ‘appalling’ betrayal as he puts a Europhile in power


Italy’s president was last night accused of an ‘appalling’ betrayal of the will of his people after ignoring impeachment calls and imposing a technocratic government led by a Europhile.

MEPs said the country was in ‘meltdown’ and hit out at Sergio Mattarella after he appointed former International Monetary Fund official Carlo Cottarelli to lead an interim administration.

Just hours earlier Mr Mattarella had faced calls to be impeached after rejecting plans from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and League parties to install a Eurosceptic as the country’s economy minister.

The populist parties had been trying to form a coalition after elections on March 4 returned a hung parliament, and wanted anti-euro professor Paolo Savona to head the ministry of the economy.
