Letta agrees with Renzi on need for 'new beginning' (see related) (ANSA) - Rome, January 16 - Premier Enrico Letta on Thursday said he agreed with the head of his center-left party about the need for a new government beginning, but disagreed about the amount of work his left-right coalition has accomplished since its formation nine months ago. "(The period marked) one of the most complex and troubled times in recent history, which this government has overcome," added Letta. At a party meeting earlier Thursday, Democratic Party chief Matteo Renzi reiterated criticism of the government for not moving faster to enact electoral and institutional reforms.
