Conte calls himself Italian president

Slip of the tongue in calling himself guarantor of cohesion

(ANSA) - Potenza, February 11 - Premier Giuseppe Conte mistakenly referred to himself as the Italian president on Monday.
    "I am, as president of the republic, the guarantor of national cohesion", he said in answering a question in Potenza on the consequences of the greater autonomy requested by a number of Italian regions. The premier did not notice his slip of the tongue and journalists did not point it out to him.
