  • Italy news- Giorgia Meloni and Matteo Salvini

The 5-Star Movement is parliament's largest party thanks to support from southern Italy, where voters in the March election liked Di Maio's promise of a minimum income for the unemployed.

Mr Conte was destined to become prime minister last week before Whitlam-like dismissal crisis threatened to derail his prime ministership before it had begun.

Mattarella had objected to the coalition nominating anti-euro politician Paolo Savona as Minister of Economy and Finances and used his veto as President to block Conte from forming government.

The Frecce Tricolori air force aerobatic demonstration team flies Saturday over the monument to the unknown soldier during ceremonies in Rome, marking.

A gleeful Salvini, an ally of French far-right figurehead Marine Le Pen, said at a rally that he would like to have a country with "a few less illegal immigrants".

The new Italian government, led by Giuseppe Conte, was sworn in at Quirinale Palace in Rome on Friday.

Speaking on Sunday in the Sicilian port of Catania, Mr Salvini said: "Enough of Sicily being the refugee camp of Europe".

The initial failure of Conte to form a government had alarmed financial markets, which feared a quick return to the polls that risked being tantamount to a plebiscite on Italy's keeping the euro currency.

Russian Envoy: Deal Reached to Remove Iranian Forces From Golan
Mr Assad said he is committed to pushing U.S. forces out of Syria during an explosive interview with Russian broadcaster RT. Other senior officials from Iran and Syria claimed Saturday that there was no Iranian military presence in the country.

Its new coalition partner Five Star Movement, led by Luigi Di Maio, has also called for a renegotiation of the EU's strict fiscal rules.

After the swearing-in, Salvini told reporters his first order of business would be to "reduce the arrivals and increase the expulsions" of migrants, as well as the costs associated with their care.

One protester brandished a sign saying "refugees welcome", while a supporter said "we don't want any more pests" and others simply chanted "Matteo, Matteo".

French leader Marine Le Pen hailed the new government as "a victory of democracy over intimidation and threats from the European Union".

"Their actions so far have been a mix of extremism, anti-Europeanism and inequity".

Most parliamentary parties, however, stated that they would not express confidence in Cottarelli's future government, which prompted the prime minister-designate to return his mandate to form a new government to the president.

The foreign policy agenda of Italy's new populist government caused a stir on two fronts Monday, with Tunisia protesting a comment by the interior minister about migrants and the pro-Russia stance of the ruling coalition receiving scrutiny.

Salvini has branded as "racist" advice from European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker for Italians to work harder and be less corrupt instead of blaming their woes on the EU. Di Maio is also the minister for labor, a combination he said made sense since the two ministries must work together.
