ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s 5-Star Movement and the center-left Democratic Party (PD) are set to agree on outgoing Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte returning as head of a new government, two PD sources told Reuters on Monday.

“We look well on track towards a new Conte government,” one of the two sources said, as talks between the two parties continued.
