ITALY’S nationalist Lega and 5Star Movement coalition have been plotting to ditch the euro and back Vladimir Putin, according to a leaked document outlining their plans for forming a government. The shock manifesto, entitled Government for Change, reveals plans for Italy to leave the single currency, calls for sanctions against Russia to be scrapped and reveals plans to ask the European Central Bank to write off the country’s £250bn debt.
The 39-page document emerged as Italy’s political deadlock looks set to continue with Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi refusing to stand aside to let his anti-EU election allies Lega form a eurosceptic government with anti-establishment 5Star. President Sergio Mattarella has demanded action after a third inconclusive round of coalition talks and warned party leaders to find an agreement, accept a “neutral government” or face new elections.
The joint Government for Change programme appears to show plenty of common ground between Lega and 5SM and is signed by their respective leaders Matteo Salvini and Luigi Di Maio. The leaked report demands a radical change in Italy’s relationship with Brussels with "a need to revise EU treaties" and to "re-discuss the Italian contribution to the EU in view of the 2020 plan".
