Italy: Monti To Introduce New Cabinet Nominees To President Wednesday


Italy’s new Prime Minister Mario Monti will introduce to President Giorgio Napolitano the candidates to his cabinet, Sky TG24 TV channel reported on Tuesday.

Monti, an ex-EU commissioner, was appointed as Italy’s Prime Minister on Sunday after the resignation of the 75-year-old Silvio Berlusconi, who stepped down after parliament approved new austerity measures demanded by the European Union to help trim Italy’s massive 1.9-trillion-euro debt.

The new prime minister has been holding consultations with Italian political party members on the new government and will give a list of ministerial nominees to the president on Wednesday.
