Cabinet list 'matters of hours' says Renzi (ANSA) - Rome, February 20 - Premier-designate Matteo Renzi said Thursday that finalising a cabinet list to present to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano was "a matter of hours", increasing the likelihood the ministerial line-up will be unveiled Friday. "It's a matter of hours and we'll complete everything," Renzi told reporters outside the HQ of his Democratic Party (PD).

Getting into a car, he replied to a fusillade of questions with: "All well, all well." Renzi, who is facing several conditions from junior partner the New Centre Right including naming an economy minister "who will not raise taxes", is expected to put his government to confidence votes on Monday and Tuesday.
