Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced his decision to resign from the position on Thursday, despite winning the confidence vote in the Senate, after the coalition withdrew its support from the government’s cost-of-living bill.
“The national unity coalition that backed this government no longer exists,” Draghi noted in a statement. “From my inauguration speech in Parliament, I have always said that this executive would only go forward if there was a clear prospect of being able to implement the government program on which the political forces had voted to trust.”
“This evening, I will tender my resignation to the president of the republic,” said the prime minister before the Council of Ministers. Mario Draghi was appointed Prime Minister by President Sergio Mattarella in 2021, following Giuseppe Conte’s resignation.
