The communication from the Prime Minister to the Council of Ministers
“Good evenings everyone,
I want to announce that tonight I will resign my resignation in the hands of the President of the Republic.
Today’s votes in Parliament are very significant from a political point of view. The majority of national unity that has supported this government since its creation is no longer there. The pact of trust underlying the government’s action has failed.
In recent days there has been the utmost commitment on my part to continue on the common path, also trying to meet the needs that have been advanced to me by the political forces. As is evident from today’s debate and vote in Parliament, this effort was not enough. From my inauguration speech in the parliament I have always said that this executive would only go forward if there was a clear prospect of being able to carry out the government program on which the political forces had voted their confidence.
This compactness was fundamental to face the challenges of these months.
These conditions no longer exist.
I thank you for your work, the many results achieved.
We must be proud of what we have achieved, in a very difficult moment, in the interest of all Italians.
