Italy's new left-leaning coalition government has been formed and will be sworn in on Thursday, bringing to an end a month-long crisis, a spokesman for President Sergio Mattarella said Wednesday.

Cabinets members will take the oath at 10am (0800 GMT) on Thursday after the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) and centre-left Democratic Party (PD) hammered out a deal to prevent the eurozone's third largest economy heading to the polls.
