Renzi says Constitutional reform 'just the start' (ANSA) - Rome, March 31 - Premier Matteo Renzi said the Constitutional reform bill his cabinet approved Monday, which transforms the Senate into a leaner assembly of local-government representatives and scraps Italy's provincial governments, was "a great turning point for the political world and the institutions". "I don't know if there will be a happy ending, but this is just the start," added Renzi, who has said he will quit politics if he is unable to push through reform of the Senate as part of a drive to make Italy easier and cheaper to govern.

"No more delays".
