ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s Prime Minister-designate Carlo Cottarelli, a former International Monetary fund official tapped by the president to lead a government of technicians, said there may be a chance for parties to form a government, Italian news agencies reported.

Cottarelli received a mandate to form a government two days ago, but no major parties have supported his efforts. In the meantime, Italy’s 5-Star Movement has renewed a push to form a coalition government with the far-right League.
