ROME (Reuters) - The leaders of Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the far right League were meeting on Thursday to try to pick a candidate for economy minister in order to present a coalition deal to the head of state, a 5-Star source said.
5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio and League chief Matteo Salvini have not yet found a substitute for their previous choice as economy minister, eurosceptic economist Paolo Savona, who was vetoed by President Sergio Mattarella, the source said.
The two leaders hope to reach a deal later on Thursday or on Friday, the source said.
The meeting between Di Maio and Salvini is still ongoing.
