Matteo Salvini: Italy and Sicily can not be Europe's refugee camp

Carlo Cottarelli was waited to talk with reporters after a meeting with Italian President Sergio Mattarella is seen at the Quirinal palace in Rome

Giuseppe Conte has been sworn in as prime minister the head of the new populist government, putting an end to the government's gridlock.

Conte initially dropped his bid to secure cabinet after President Mattarella's blocked Conte's initial choice for economy minister, which cast doubt on the ability of the coalition to form a government.

Mattarella had triggered a fresh crisis at the weekend when he vetoed eurosceptic Paolo Savona as economy minister in a previously proposed Five Star-League government.

Italian President Sergio Mattarella approved the new government Thursday, cementing Five Star Movement leader Luigi Di Maio, a 31-year-old college dropout, as one of the deputy prime ministers who will be a driving force in the government.

The two enraged parties abandoned their joint bid for power, and on Monday Mattarella asked ex-IMF economist Carlo Cottarelli to form a caretaker government created to take Italy to what looked like probable autumn elections.

The 5-Star Motion is Parliament's largest get together because of assist from southern Italy, the place voters within the March election preferred Di Maio's promise of a minimal revenue for the unemployed.

Savona, 81, was ultimately given a role in the government as minister of European affairs. The swearing-in ceremony for the new government is expected to be held later on Friday.

Despite decrying Italy's long history of installing unelected technocrats, the parties suggested Conte as prime minister. He is critical of the European Union but not an advocate of leaving the euro, making him more acceptable to President Mattarella.

The new government features 18 ministers, including five women.

Mr Conte was destined to become prime minister last week before Whitlam-like dismissal crisis threatened to derail his prime ministership before it had begun. Salvini said holding centres for those awaiting deportation would be built so "they won't leave from morning till night".

A gleeful Salvini, an ally of French far-right figurehead Marine Le Pen, said at a rally that he would like to have a country with "a few less illegal immigrants".

But the alliance between the M5S and the League will only have a relatively narrow majority in the Italian Senate, easing some concerns among investors and officials in Brussels that the new government could take drastic actions.

While confirming Italy's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments, the new government's policy agenda calls for lifting European Union sanctions against Russian Federation as well as the opening of dialogue and partnerships, given Moscow's economic, commercial and strategic importance.

European Council President Donald Tusk congratulated Conte, but warned the incoming populists that the EU needed "unity and solidarity more than ever".
