Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Monday he did not see any danger to the government in the coming months as it turns its efforts to new reforms after closing the budget for next year.
The Italian parliament passed the government’s 2019 budget on Saturday, just ahead of a year-end deadline, following a deal with the European Commission which calmed financial markets and averted a risk of fines against Rome.
“I hope this will be the last budget being approved after long and complicated negotiations with Brussels,” Salvini said in an interview with daily newspaper Il Corriere della Sera, adding that he hoped that European Union veto power on state finances would be overcome.
