Italian Prime Minister Robert Conte announced his resignation at a cabinet meeting today (26 June), after which he went to the presidential palace to submit his resignation. Foreign media expect President matarella to accept Conte’s resignation and hold consultations with the leaders of Italian political parties to solve the current government crisis.

Last week, the vitality Party led by former Prime Minister Renzi withdrew from the ruling coalition because of dissatisfaction with Conte’s response to the new crown crisis and economic recession. Conte lost an absolute majority in the house of Lords. There are also Italian media analysis that Conte may be re appointed by matarela, after which he will restructure the government to seek more party support, so as to achieve an absolute majority in parliament, so as to promote legislation and deal with the economic crisis caused by the epidemic.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia has been holding a high support rate of over 50% since the national blockade in Italy, according to Reuters.
