Salvini says elections needed, not 'strange govts'

We'll pass no-confidence motion in Conte on Aug 20-League leader

(ANSA) - Rome, August 14 - League leader and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Wednesday that Italy should have fresh elections as soon as possible, arguing that the political crisis he sparked last week should not lead to "strange governments". He said that the no-confidence motion in Premier Giuseppe Conte that the League has filed in the Senate will pass on August 20.
    "Lots of people are asking me to make sure there are no power games, no technocrat governments," Salvini told Rtl 102.5 radio.
    "The best way, the most democratic, transparent, direct one, is to have elections.
    "We are doing everything possible so that the Italian people can vote.
    "I say no to strange governments. The sooner we vote, the better".
