(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 3 – Nationalist Brothers of Italy (FdI)
leader Giorgia Meloni said Wednesday FdI would not back former
European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi as premier and called
on her allies, the natonalist League party of Matteo Salvini and
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right Forza Italia (FI),
party to abstain on any vote for him.
    FI has voiced support for Draghi while Salvini has said he may
listen to his proposals but a general election is best for
Italy.
    With the biggest party in parliament, the populist 5-Star
Movement (M5S), mostly against Draghi he does not at the moment
have the numbers for a majority in either house, unless the
League backs him along with FI. FdI has said it will oppose him.
