Italian president to hold govt consultations on Oct. 20-21

ROME (Reuters) – Consultations on the formation of Italy’s new government – widely expected to be led by nationalist leader Giorgia Meloni – will be held on Oct. 20 and 21, the office of President Sergio Mattarella said on Wednesday.

Meloni led a rightist bloc comprising her Brothers of Italy party, Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia and Matteo Salvini’s League to a general election victory last month.

Before he can ask Meloni to form a new government, Mattarella has to consult with political party leaders in his presidential palace – a constitutional process expected to lead to her taking office by the middle of next week.
