Pro-Conte govt majority rises to 171 Senators

Support from 352 MPs in Lower House

(ANSA) - Rome, May 24 - The number of Senators willing to support a government under prime minister-designate Giuseppe Conte has risen to 171 out of 318, ten more than needed for an absolute majority, after four crossed over from the mixed group.
    The League-M5S-backed future government has much more leeway in the Lower House, where some 352 out of 630 are expected to support it.
