ROME, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Italy's caretaker government, led by Mario Draghi, should not leave it to the next administration to take urgent measures against the energy price hike, the leader of the League party Matteo Salvini said on Monday.

Explaining that it would take one month for a new right-wing government to be nominated, Salvini said that "losing one month would be frustrating".
