ITALY is on the brink of becoming “ungovernable” due to the rise of Eurosceptic parties, ex-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said.

The Democratic Party (PD) secretary yesterday blasted the growth of right-wing populism in Italy, branding it “very dangerous”.

Mr Renzi, who quit as PM last year after losing a referendum on constitutional reform, admitted: “Ungovernability in Italy is a great risk.

“That is why I am so disgusted to have lost the referendum. We would have ended this situation.”

He also attacked Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi, Lega Nord chief Matteo Salvini and the Five-Star Movement (M5S)’s Beppe Grillo.

Mr Renzi told El Pais: “It is true that there are populist forces in Italy that are very dangerous in the eyes of the European observer.

“The M5S is, in the European group, more anti-European. Salvini, who has made the agreement with Berlusconi, is a populist.

“And with them, of course, it is impossible to reach agreements.”

Pro-Brussels Mr Renzi added: “Berlusconi and the right are in the hands of Salvini, which is a piece of populism.

“And M5S are in the hands of the other great populist front.

“There is a political space for one who, like us, reasons the heart and intelligence of the average Italian.”
