Italy: Pro-EU President Faces Impeachment Over Coalition Killing Veto

Italian President President Sergio Mattarella faces the threat of impeachment after sabotaging a coalition government negociated between the Five Star Movement and The League. Mattarella vetoed the appointment of Euroskeptic Paolo Savona as finance minister even though Euroskepticism was the driving force behind the populist electoral victory (archived). In defense of this affront to Italian Democracy Mattarella offered:

"I asked for… an authoritative person from the parliamentary majority who is consistent with the government programme… who isn't seen as a supporter of a line that could probably, or even inevitably, provoke Italy's exit from the euro"

How much more suffering under Mother Merkel's Fourth Reich will Italians tolerate?
