“I swear to be faithful to the Republic, to loyally comply with the Constitution and laws and to exercise my functions in the exclusive interest of the nation,” he declared before Sergio Mattarella at the Roman Quirinale Palace.

After Draghi, former president of the European Central Bank (ECB), twenty-three ministers of his government are beginning to take office, including renowned technicians who will take on important portfolios such as Economy, Interior or Energy Transition.

Draghi said he had accepted the invitation of the Italian President, Sergio Mattarella, to assume the post of Prime Minister of Italy, after having guaranteed the support of almost all parties represented in Parliament.

The 73-year-old economist replaces Giuseppe Conte, who resigned after Matteo Renzi’s Italia Viva party, a coalition partner, left the government, leaving him without a majority in parliament.

On the 3rd of this month, Draghi accepted, “albeit with reservations”, the task of forming a government, after Conte’s resignation, nine days earlier, a prudence that he justified by wanting to verify, first, what support he could obtain to govern.
