Italy Prime Minister-designate Mario Monti on Wednesday unveiled his new cabinet to deal with his country’s debt crisis.

The former EU commissioner named himself as Italy’s new economy minister.

Monti’s cabinet does not contain a single elected politician.

His ministers are drawn from the worlds of finance, academia, and law.

The 68-year-old does have the support of all major political parties.

Only the right-wing Northern League has refused to back him.

Monti must win a vote of confidence in both houses of parliament before he can officially take office.
