Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced that he had “put forward a suggestion to dissolve” his political partnership with Matteo Salvini, following Salvini’s comments on live television that “women of a certain age” shouldn’t be on television. The dissolution comes after a week of increasing tension between the two parties following Salvini’s gender-biased remarks. This split leaves Conte with the responsibility to form a new policy coalition, which he hopes will ensure that Italy maintains a reliable governance.
