ROME (Reuters) – Talks between the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement to try to form a new Italian government were positive and “give good reason for hope”, a PD lawmaker said on Friday after the meeting.

Head of state Sergio Mattarella has given parties until Tuesday to find a solution to the political crises.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte resigned this week after Matteo Salvini said the ruling coalition made up of his far-right party, the League, and the 5-Star was no longer workable.
