Italian PM Mario Draghi resigns after week of turmoil

Mario Draghi resigned from his position as prime minster, a year and a half after he was elected as Italy’s unelected head for a unity government.

After three of his party members refused to support him in a confidence vote, he told President Sergio Mattarella that he would be stepping down.

He was asked by the president to continue as caretaker leader up until early elections which are expected in autumn.

It is well-known that Mr. Draghi (74) is an Italian celebrity.


Super Mario was his nickname for his handling the eurozone crisis at the head of the European Central Bank.

A week ago, however, one party in his broad-based government refused support his economic package. This triggered a political crisis.

President Mattarella requested that he remain in the position, but he was unable get the support from the coalition when he suggested a revived government deal on Wednesday.
