Italian president rejects Draghi’s resignation as prime minister

The prime minister resigned after the 5 Star Movement, without which Draghi, in his own words, does not see the government, refused to vote on one of the bills – this became a formal withdrawal from the parliamentary majority

Sergio Matarellai Mario Draghi

Italian President Sergio Mattarella has not accepted the resignation of Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi. His statement was published on Twitter.

Matarella invited Draghi to speak in Parliament, “to assess the situation that arose from the results of the Senate meeting today.”

Earlier, Draghi said at a meeting of the Council of Ministers that he would submit his resignation to Matarella. “Much of the national unity that has supported this government since its inception has disappeared. The Confidence Pact underlying the Government's actions has failed,— explained Draghi.

This happened after the day before, the 5 Star Movement, which is part of the government coalition, refused to vote on one of the bills due to disagreement with one of its provisions, thus formally marking the exit from the parliamentary majority. Draghi has previously said that he does not see his government without this party.

After the vote in the Senate, the prime minister met with the president, but, according to ANSA and Corriere della Sera, Draghi did not submit his resignation at this meeting.

Draghi has been heading the Italian cabinet since February 2021. Since then, he has formed the government twice. Before that, he headed the Bank of Italy, and from 2011 to 2019 he was the chairman of the European Central Bank.
