Economist Mario Draghi is sworn in as Italy’s new Prime Minister

The economist Mario Draghi was sworn in today as the new Prime Minister of Italy before the Head of State, Sergio Mattarella, who commissioned him to form a Government due to the crisis unleashed after the resignation of Giuseppe Conte on 26 January.

“I swear to be faithful to the Republic, loyally observe the Constitution and the laws and exercise my functions in favor of the exclusive interest of the nation,” he declared before Mattarella at the Roman Quirinale Palace, among measures against the anti-coronavirus.
After Draghi, former president of the European Central Bank (ECB), his twenty-three ministers began to be sworn in, of whom eight are women: eight technicians and fifteen come from the parties that support him, all of the Parliament except the far-right Brothers of Italy.
