ROME (Reuters) - Italy's president swore in Giuseppe Conte on Friday as prime minister of Western Europe's first anti-establishment government whose aim is to cut taxes, boost welfare spending and overhaul European Union rules on budgets and immigration.
Conte, a 53-year-old law professor, must now win confidence votes in parliament next week. The parties backing Conte -- the far-right League and the radical 5-Star Movement -- have solid majorities in both houses.
