Draghi didn’t mention ESM says M5S’s Crimi

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 9 – 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Vito
Crimi said Tuesday that Premier-designate Mario Draghi did not
even mention the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) during
government-formation talks.
    The M5S’s refusal to take up the option to have over 30 billion
euros in low-interest funding from the ESM to invest in the
health sector was a big factor in the centrist Italia Viva (IV)
party withdrawing its support for outgoing Premier Giuseppe
Conte’s government and causing it to collapse.
    “A measure like the ESM should be used if there is a plan and
economic reasons, which there are not,” Crimi said after talks
with Draghi.
    “Indeed, Draghi did not list the ESM in the government’s action
    Crimi said Draghi had given reassurances about the need to focus
on the environmental transformation of the economy. (ANSA).
