Letta's resignation as premier makes world news (ANSA) - Rome, February 14 - The resignation Friday of Premier Enrico Letta made breaking news bulletins all over the world media.

Letta's decision to step down was broadcast from the BBC in Britain to the United States' network CNN to Canada's CBC to Aljazeera. Before tendering his resignation to President Giorgio Napolitano, Letta thanked those who had "helped him" after 10 months at the helm of two bickering left-right coalitions.

Napolitano is expected to give a government-formation mandate to the leader of Letta's Democratic Party, Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi.
