MILAN (Reuters) - The Italian government will carry on without a cabinet reshuffle, Italy’s Deputy PM and leader of the 5-Star Movement, which saw its support slump in Sunday’s European parliament elections, said on Monday.

In an interview with newspaper Il Corriere della Sera, Luigi Di Maio also said that 5 Star’s result was hurt by a low turnout. The 5 Star is ready to discuss tax cuts and a minimum wage with its coalition partner the League, Di Maio added.
