Former ECB chief Mario Draghi appointed Italy’s next PM

Pesident Sergio Mattarella has asked Draghi to be prime minister, following a week of consultations. Almost all the main parties from across the political spectrum now support the decision.

Although some of the roles were retained my major players in Italian politics, a number of key posts went to non-affiliated technocrats, including Daniele Franco, director general of the Bank of Italy, who was named as economy minister and Roberto Cingolani, a physicist and IT expert, who was handed the new role of minister for green transition.
