Italian President Sergio Mattarella completed two days of talks with parties in search for a solution for the political turmoil. He told reports that dissolving parliament just 17 months after last election shouldn’t be a decision that’s taken lightly. Some parties are trying to form a solid majority for coalition. Mattarella requested the parties, without naming them, to report back on Tuesday for two more days of talks.

It’s known that the 5-Star Movement is trying to form a coalition with center-left Democratic Party. Speaking to reporters after his meeting with the president, 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio said “in recent hours, all the necessary contacts have been launched to find a solid majority”. Additionally, Di Maio had handed Mattarella a list of 10 reforms that he wanted to see completed before parliament was dissolved.
