ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s new ruling coalition intends to stick with the citizen’s income scheme introduced by the previous government, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Monday.

“Indeed, it will be implemented,” Conte said addressing the lower house of parliament ahead of a confidence vote in the new administration later on Monday.

Conte also said the government did not plan to dismantle welfare measures for low income earners.
