Salvini says Italy needs 50 bln euro budget for ‘shock’ stimulus

Published: Updated:

The leader of Italy’s ruling League party, Matteo Salvini, said on Tuesday that a 50 billion euro ($55 billion) budget is necessary next year to bring about a “shock” fiscal stimulus.

Salvini pulled the plug on the League’s coalition government with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement this month, starting a potential countdown to elections which could complicate the nation’s preparations for the 2020 budget.
