Mario Draghi sworn in as Italy’s prime minister

58 second read

Mario Draghi was formally sworn in as Italy’s new prime minister on Saturday, following weeks of instability in the eurozone’s third-largest economy.

Draghi was parachuted in by President Sergio Mattarella after the Giuseppe Conte’s centre-left coalition collapsed.

The pandemic has left more than 93,000 people dead in Italy, and and triggered the country’s deepest recession since World War II.

Draghi has spent the last 10 days assembling a broad-based coalition and on Friday night formally accepted the post of prime minister in a meeting with Mattarella.
