Renzi vows electoral reforms by end of February
Consultations with parties over forming govt to start Tuesday17 February, 12:25
"I accepted (the mandate) with reserve...and I assured him we will put all of our commitment behind this difficult situation," said Renzi.
Consultations with political parties to form a new government will start Tuesday, he added. An election reform bill he negotiated with ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi is scheduled to go before the House Tuesday. Slowness to enact such reforms was at the crux of his criticism of outgoing Premier Enrico Letta.
