Anti-establishment and far-right parties began haggling over who will be Italy's next prime minister after publishing a joint policy program Friday that brought the eurozone's third-largest economy a step closer to a populist government.The two parties now need to announce a prime ministerial candidate in time for a meeting Monday with President Sergio Mattarella.The key worry is how Italy, the eurozone's second most debt-laden country, can fund the coalition's proposals, such as drastic tax cuts and a monthly basic income for some 9 million people.Some experts estimated the cost of the document's proposals at 100 billion euros (almost $118 billion).
