Technocrats fill Italy's coalition

Issue No. 2351

Italy’s newly elected prime minister Enrico Letta has formed a coalition government. It brings together his own centre-left Democratic party with Silvio Berlusconi’s  People of Freedom camp.

Italy has been without a government since elections in February failed to give a single party a clear majority. The new government, which includes several unelected technocrats, has united to force through austerity.
