Italian government wins vote of confidence with comfortable majority

The new Italian government won a vote of confidence in Parliament with a comfortable majority. The government garnered the support of 343 MPs while 263 voted against. There were 3 abstentions. Reacting after the result, Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte said he is satisfied with the result.

This was the first vote of confidence in Conte’s new Government after the coalition between Luigi di Maio’s Movimento Cinque Stelle and Matteo Salvini’s Lega Nord collapsed last month. Today, the Italian government will face another, much stiffer vote of confidence, which is to taken by the Italian Senate.
