Far-right wins in France send signal to Italy, Renzi says (see related) (ANSA) - The Hague, March 24 - Premier Matteo Renzi on Monday said far-right victories in French local elections sent a strong signal to Italy to address voter disenfranchisement. "We need to get our house in order, straighten out the country, and we'll do that," said Renzi when asked to comment on the National Front's better-than-expected results over the weekend. Speaking from The Hague after a major global summit on nuclear security, he went on to comment on how well-respected Italy is by its international partners. "People are paying a lot of attention to us," said Renzi, whose government is trying to pass over 12 billion euros in income and business tax cuts to stimulate the economy's slowgoing recovery after the worst recession since World War II.
