ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s far-right League party will not block rapid political solutions that would allow the country to handle possible emergencies, but it wants an election as soon as possible, a source from the party said on Wednesday.

“At this point, we will not block rapid solutions capable of managing emergencies, but we must let Italians express themselves again as soon as possible,” the source said.

The source did not explain what was meant by “emergencies”, though financial markets have been in turmoil over the continuing political uncertainty.
