Renzi foresees PD alliances with centrists and leftists (see related) (ANSA) - Rome, February 6 - Democratic Party (PD) leader Matteo Renzi on Thursday said he envisioned new alliances with centrist and leftist parties under his new election bill in parliament. "I take for granted a group of centrists and a part of the left (will be with us)," the Florence mayor told a PD meeting of bigwigs.

Under the law, which is expected to pass, small parties face a tougher time getting into parliament, increasing the likelihood they will opt to join a coalition rather than risk being pushed out of politics.
