Former European Central Bank chief, Mario Draghi, was sworn in as Italy’s new Prime Minister on Saturday.


The 73-year-old had put together a unity government of the main political parties, following the collapse of the previous administration.

Ex-PM Giuseppe Conte had resigned in January after his party lost support for its coalition government over plans for spending EU recovery money.

On Wednesday, Draghi will be presented to the Senate, the upper house of parliament, followed by the lower Chamber of Deputies on Thursday for a confidence vote that will give the final official blessing to his government.
