Italy's 5-Star chief says government program review not quite finished

ROME (Reuters) - The leader of Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement said on Thursday the program intended to be the basis of a coalition government with the far-right League had not yet been definitively approved.

Luigi Di Maio told reporters after a meeting with League chief Matteo Salvini that there were still some “minor points” which needed to be agreed on, adding that a final deal would be reached later in the day.

A 5-Star source had told Reuters earlier that the two leaders had signed off on the pact.
