Italian PM Conte faces challenge as Renzi again disrupts

ROME – Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte is facing a challenge to his government’s survival, with a junior partner threatening to pull its support just as Italy is battling a resurgence of the virus and a recession, and is launching a huge mass vaccination program.For weeks, ex-Premier Matteo Renzi has criticized Conte’s plans for using European Union pandemic recovery funds and centralizing government decision-making.

If Renzi follows through on threats to yank his small Italy Alive party's support from the government, the crisis would force Conte into a number of unwelcome scenarios, including a Cabinet reshuffle, a confidence vote in parliament to see if he still has a majority, or tendering his resignation.
