Italian PM Conte resigning amid tensions in coalition

Conte said he would step down on Tuesday, following a move last week by Salvini, who also serves as interior minister, to back out of a ruling coalition, plunging Italy into political turmoil.

“Salvini’s decision [to call time on the coalition] is serious, it has relevant consequences for the economic and social life of the country,” said Conte. 

Conte would formally submit his resignation to President Sergio Matarella later on Tuesday at the presidential residence.
