ROME (Reuters) - Italy's League party leader Matteo Salvini urged his right-wing alliance partner Forza Italia and the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement on Friday to stop bickering and agree to govern together or run the risk of a new national election.

The March 4 election ended with a hung parliament and no clear majority has yet emerged.

"If the squabbles, the fighting, the tantrums and the teasing continue, it's best to go vote again," Salvini said on RAI state TV.

Salvini was speaking after talks with President Sergio Mattarella showed on Thursday the parties are locked in a stalemate over the formation of a government.
