Italy's League, 5-Star say July 8 best date for repeat election

ROME (Reuters) - Italy should hold a repeat election on July 8 if no last-minute deal can be reached to form a new government following an inconclusive vote two months ago, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the far-right League said on Monday.

League leader Matteo Salvini and 5-Star chief Luigi Di Maio proposed the date after a face-to-face meeting in parliament, as President Sergio Mattarella holds a final round of consultations to try to broker a political deal between the parties.
