Italy's 5-Star seeks "clarification" with League over tax amnesty row

FIGLINE VALDARNO, Italy Oct 18 (Reuters) - The head of Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement Luigi Di Maio said on Thursday that a dispute with the League over a tax amnesty needed to be hammered out because it was upsetting financial markets.

“We need a political clarification,” Di Maio told reporters in Tuscany after the two ruling parties had their first major clash over the amnesty contained in the 2019 budget.

Di Maio said a steep rise in yields on Italian government bonds on Thursday was “because markets think this government is no longer united.”
