Mario Draghi should continue in his hands-on role as Italy’s prime minister, even as lawmakers begin selecting a candidate for the more ceremonial position of president, League party leader Matteo Salvini said. 

Draghi, former chief of the European Central Bank, is a top contender to be Italy’s president and has signaled he would be open to making the move to the Quirinale, the former papal palace where Italian presidents reside.
