Italy’s Giuseppe Conte: We Are ‘Proud to Call Ourselves Populists’

“If populism means giving sovereignty back to the people, we are proud to call ourselves populists,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said in an address to the Italian Parliament Tuesday.

The prime minister’s words came in preparation for a meeting of the Council of the European Union (E.U.) and the Euro Summit, which will take place in Brussels later this week to discuss the E.U. budget and the migration question, among other things.
