12:16 pm
has long supported back in the government. we're not hearing so far from the key party, the 5 star movement. but there's a lot of pressure on them to kind of get in line and support this government. it's unclear and the following hours now and later this evening here in rome, if they will also kind of, you know, joker in the mix is the lager, this right wing party led by saline in the senate. and he and his party also in the coalition as former prime minister. so we're going to are given signs that they don't want to be in a government where the 5 star movement, this wildcard movement is still allowed to take part. so we're seeing all these kind of leaks come out to the press, but that's typical in italy. it doesn't really mean much till the vote because we're all trying to re tea leaves that are almost illegible. but we are seeing, at least in the mainstream media, and here outside the senate, people coming out and saying they feel very good about this speech. again, these are allies of draggy, where you have to see what these more minority players are going to say. but the pressure is building for them to do something and to support this because the

12:18 pm
italy, public square saying we want to rocky, that is really not heard of. usually it's more parliament 3 game. so this is clearly going to have an impact also on the way people vote and the senate later this evening. it's not clear yet what that will be, but the pressure is building not just in government in the senate, but also in the street in italy. and that's really, i don't know if we caught a grass roots movement doreen, but it's a nationwide one by some of the political leaders and even the most smallest local level in this country. all right, i will check in with you later. thank you so much. i'm rainy, reporting from room conservative employees in the u. k will later narrow down the party's leadership race to the final 2 candidates. they will then enter, run all vote among party members. the former chancellor wishes to knock the foreign secretary this trust and trade minister pending more on are the 3 remaining candidates. a winner will replace boris johnson as prime minister in september. john hall has more from london. i think. while we're almost there really,
