ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement is considering campaigning together with the far-right League if the nation goes back to the polls, a 5-star source said on Monday.
The two parties abandoned their plans to form a coalition government after Italy’s head of state vetoed their choice of economy minister on Sunday. 5-Star had waged an independent campaign at inconclusive March 4 elections, while the League campaigned as part of a coalition of right-wing parties.
“It is too early to know what will happen. We will soon vote on the budget law and will understand what will happen,” another 5-Star source said.
Earlier on Monday, League leader Matteo Salvini said his party was evaluating whether to continue the alliance with the 5-star in any new elections.
