Centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani has failed in his attempt to find a way out of Italy's political deadlock and President Giorgio Napolitano will now seek another solution.
The euroskeptic M5S and the anti-migrant League have said they're moving "quickly" to give Italy a government. But Italy's president has warned the parties against wreaking havoc on the country's status in the EU.
Italy's president says the country will need to hold a fresh vote if bickering political parties cannot work together. Negotiations to form a government have been deadlocked since an inconclusive election in March.
On Monday, Italy's parties will once again try to form a coalition government. The outcome is unclear, but a stable interim government could serve the country better than if populists take over, says Bernd Riegert.
The Five Star Movement has signaled for the first time that it would prefer the Democratic Party over La Lega in a possible governing coalition. Italy has been without a government since its election last month.
