Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Tuesday said in a newspaper interview his divided coalition government should put aside differences and work together to pursue reforms including a decisive income tax reform.
“The debate of the past few weeks has damaged us because it projected the image of a coalition where many people are looking to carve their own political space ... we must work together,” Conte told Corriere della Sera daily.
“Structural reforms which are ahead of us require team play ... I will ask everyone to embrace this attitude and demand a clear commitment from all of them.”
