Italy’s Opposition PD Says  Coalition Talks at Risk of Failure

ROME - Talks between Italy’s ruling 5-Star Movement and the opposition Democratic Party (PD) to form a new coalition government are at risk of failure over who should became the next interior minister, a PD spokesman said on Tuesday.
The anti-establishment 5-Star party and center-left PD, traditional political enemies, are trying to forge a government after 5-Star’s 14-month-old coalition with the right-wing League party broke down this month after months of infighting.
The PD spokesman accused 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio of hindering talks with his request to serve as interior minister as well as deputy prime minister.
Shortly after, 5-Star sources said Di Maio had never demanded the interior ministry. (Reuters)
