Renzi says woman reminded him anyone could have his job (See related) (ANSA) - Rome, February 24 - Premier Matteo Renzi joked Monday about a woman's put-down outside Sunday Mass as he asked the Senate for a vote of confidence in his new government.

"A lady outside Mass (Sunday) said to me: 'if you can be head of cabinet, anyone can'," said Renzi.

He explained that what she said was basically true and thanked his Democratic Party (PD) for its vote of support earlier this month that allowed him to take over as premier from his colleague Enrico Letta.
