The number of new appointments is smaller than in the previous executive; three fewer undersecretaries compared with 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.
