The oath of the new Government, which will be presented this afternoon, will take place tomorrow at the Quirinal Palace, headquarters of the Head of State, at 10:00 local time (08:00 GMT).

The Head of State has chosen to entrust the formation of the Government to Melonithe most voted in the elections and that has been proposed by the right-wing coalition that he heads and of which Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi are also a part, which has an absolute majority in Parliament.

It is expected that now Meloni announce his list of ministers, distributed among notables from his party, Salvini’s pro-sovereignty League and Berlusconi’s conservative Forza Italia.

As a particularity, the Roman politician, 45 years old, has accepted the position “without reservations”, something unusual in Italian politics since those called to govern usually require a few days to iron out the last aspects of the Executives.

The head of state has waited to announce his decision on the return of the outgoing prime minister, Mario Draghi, who has participated until this Friday in a European Council on energy considered key for Rome.

The head of the Brothers of Italy, a party heir to the post-fascists of the Italian Social Movement, rose in Italian politics as the only opposition to the Government of national unity that Draghi presided over since February 2021 to face the pandemic.

Once the composition of its future Executive is announced, the oath will take place, predictably during the weekend, and the transfer of powers with Draghi, with the celebration of the first Council of Ministers.

For the official launch of the Government, Meloni he must submit to the investiture in the two seats of Parliament, the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, a formality given that the coalition has a sufficient majority to govern.

In the opposition will sit the progressive Democratic Party, the populist Five Star Movement and the centrists of the Third Pole, among other small formations.
