Letta 'scrubs UK visit' with Renzi poised to take job (ANSA) - Rome, February 13 - Premier Enrico Letta has cancelled an official visit to Britain later this month as his Democratic Party (PD) leader Matteo Renzi moved closer to taking his job, the Financial Times said Thursday. Renzi made a strong call for a new government at a PD executive meeting Thursday.

Letta was scheduled to visit the UK on February 24-25.

Renzi told PD bigwigs Italy needed a new government with a stronger reform agenda lasting to 2018.
