Can't join Conte #2 says Zingaretti

Need to start new govt says PD leader

(ANSA) - Rome, August 21 - Democratic Party (PD) leader Nicola Zingaretti on Wednesday ruled out the idea of the PD backing a second government led by premier Giuseppe Conte who resigned Tuesday sparking presidential consultations for a new government or elections. "Discontinuity means that obviously we don't want to and can't join a government that proposes a Conte #2, the continuation of a government that we fought," he said.
    "Everyone should get behind the need to start a new government".
