'Historic day' says Letta
'We can look far ahead', PM says on confidence-vote wins02 October, 16:49
(ANSA) - Rome, October 2 - Premier Enrico Letta said Wednesday "today is a historic day" after he won a crunch Senate confidence vote and was poised to get the House's confidence too on a platform to implement key economic and political reforms.
Letta said the "clarification" provided by the votes would bolster support for an agenda lasting at least another year to steer the economy out of recession, stoke growth, cut political costs and reform a dysfunctional electoral law.
"Today is a historic day, we have clearer conditions that let us look far ahead," the premier said.
