There are seven women, a third of the total, among these the only technocrat, Luciana Lamorgese, at the interior. The M5S also gets the cabinet secretary, Riccardo Fraccaro.

The government will be sworn in at 10 a.m. Thursday and face confidence votes starting in the House Monday. Conte said after announcing his list of ministers Wednesday that "fortified by a programme that looks to the future, we will devote our best energies, our competencies and our passion to make Italy better in the interests of all citizens".
