Italy's Parliament met for the first time Friday after a national election earlier this month left no group with any clear majority and as talks between political rivals stalled. The anti-establishment Five Star Movement, which emerged the biggest party in the March 4 vote, appeared to have stitched up the choices of the speakers of the two houses, the opening act of the new parliament, just 24 hours ago.One thing to watch for during the parliamentary voting in coming days will be whether Salvini continues to allow Berlusconi to call the shots, or whether he will break with the center-right coalition and strike a deal with Five Star on his own.
