Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi resigns

Deutsche Welle reports: Italy’s President has accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Mario Draghi after a week-long attempt to unite his crumbling coalition failed.

Draghi went to Sergio Mattarella’s office this morning to offer his resignation — for the second time in a week. The president accepted but asked Draghi to stay on as caretaker until a replacement can be found. Earlier in parliament, Draghi told lawmakers he had tried and failed to gain the necessary support he needed to continue in the job.
