Senate chief calls heads of parliamentary groups for meeting on Monday, after ruling coalition partner submits motion.
Axar.az reports citing AA that a party in the ruling coalition in Italy submitted on Friday a motion of no-confidence in current government to the Senate. The crisis in the current government broke on Thursday, when Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who is also leader of the League Party, called for snap elections, citing the coalition government’s inability to agree on policy issues.
"Too many no's are hurting Italy which needs development. Therefore, Italy should go to elections," the League Party said, referring to its coalition partner 5-Star Movement (M5S).
The two parties blamed each other for the deep divisions within the coalition, prompting Salvini to call for new elections.
M5S and the League party formed a coalition government on June 1, 2018 under the leadership of technocrat Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
