If the Five Star-League plan were to fall apart, Mattarella could revert to an earlier idea to appoint a non-partisan premier, though both populist groups have said they'll use their blocking majority to shoot down any such candidate and trigger new elections. 5-Star has moderated its position over the previous year, but the League still wants to leave the eurozone as soon as politically feasible.
