Italy’s right-wing coalition would not seek an overhaul of the country’s plan for spending European Union recovery funds, a leading member of the alliance said as investors closely watch Sunday’s general elections.

“It is impossible to renegotiate Italy’s plan to spend the funds,” Antonio Tajani, deputy head of the center-right Forza Italia party and a former president of the European Parliament, told Bloomberg in Rome on Tuesday. “More flexibility is possible, not a revolution.”
