Alfano says NCD will support govt 'if it has a voice' (see previous) (ANSA) - Rome, February 18 - Deputy Premier Angelino Alfano, the head of the New Center Right (NCD) party, said Tuesday "we will stay in the government if the voice of the center right is loud and clear within the program". Alfano spoke after consultations with Premier-Designate Matteo Renzi, who received a government-formation mandate on Monday. The support of the NCD could be crucial to gaining a governing majority. Earlier the head of the leftist SEL party said he could not support a Renzi coalition, something that heartened Alfano. "The first obstacle has been overcome," he said.
