Renzi announces new members of his pared-down executive (ANSA) - Rome, February 28 - Premier Matteo Renzi's executive will include 44 undersecretaries and nine junior ministers in addition to his new cabinet of 16 ministers, cabinet secretary Graziano Delrio announced Friday.

The number of new appointments is smaller than in the previous executive; three fewer undersecretaries compared with the 47 in the administration of ex-premier Enrico Letta, and one less junior minister. Just one week earlier, Renzi announced his new cabinet of 16 ministers, half of whom are women, marking the first time parity between the sexes has been achieved in an Italian executive.
