Italy remained mired in a political stalemate on Sunday over the president's rejection of the finance minister proposed by the populist coalition, a row that has rattled financial markets.President Sergio Mattarella has refused to give his blessing to the coalition's government lineup because it includes 81-year-old Paolo Savona, a fierce critic of the euro, as economy and finance minister.The far-right League and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement have failed to set up shop in Rome since scoring the most votes in Italy's inconclusive elections nearly three months ago.Their pick for prime minister Giuseppe Conte, 53, won Mattarella's approval last week. According to the Italian press, Mattarella wants to avoid isolating Italy within the European Union.
