  • Brussels calls on Italy to stay committed to the 'European path'

League leader Matteo Salvini and 5-Star Movement leader Luigi Di Maio are insisting they are close to a deal created to help ordinary Italians.

On Tuesday the leaders both hit back hard after European Commissioners said the new government in Rome will have to respect the EU's Stability Pact and hoped Italy's policy on asylum seekers does not change. Italy, along with Greece, has taken the brunt of the Mediterranean migrant crisis and has been credited with saving Europe's honour for its efforts to save lives at sea. Following an agreement with Libya, the flow of migrants from North Africa has slowed down, although human rights groups have expressed concerns over human rights abuses and torture. A more conciliatory Di Maio promised dialogue with the European Union, but warned that "we won't be subordinates to some Eurocrats". "The next few days will be crucial", Luigi Di Maio told reporters after meeting with Mr. Mattarella. The 32-year old leader of M5S said the criticism was motivating him to move onwards with the formation of a government.
