MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio told an Italian paper the country’s public deficit could exceed the European Union’s ceiling of 3 percent of gross domestic product next year to fund spending measures promised before the vote.

“I do not exclude (breaching the 3 percent limit), everything is possible. But we can’t say it now, we are working at the budget law,” Di Maio told Il Fatto Quotidiano on Tuesday.

Di Maio reiterated that the government is aiming at nationalizing toll motorways, which are currently managed by Autostrade per l’Italia, controlled by Milan-listed Atlantia (MI:).
