Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte named two new ministers on Saturday to replace his education minister who resigned this week and outlined an ambitious agenda for next year including reform of the justice system and state bureaucracy.

In a three-hour year-end news conference, Conte accused right-wing opposition leader Matteo Salvini of “insidious” political behavior and appealed for unity from the fractious coalition backing his own government.

“Politics doesn’t need conflicts. Polemics and marking out our differences don’t help us,” Conte said in reference to the frequent bickering between the 5-Star Movement, the center-left Democratic Party (PD) and smaller centrist and leftist parties.
