Italy's 5-Star says welcomes PD's openings on Conte, wants to talk

ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement said on Tuesday it welcomed signs from the Democratic Party (PD) that PD was willing to accept a return of Giuseppe Conte as prime minister and it wanted to resume talks to form a government.

The parties are negotiating after the collapse of the previous coalition of 5-Star and the hard right League which triggered Conte’s resignation.

“We positively greet the openings from authoritative members of the PD on the future role of Prime Minister Conte. We are ready for a dialogue on policies,” 5-Star said in a statement.
