'Renzi led secret anti-Prodi vote in 2013' says Fassina

"Party need not fear ambush from us' he tells Radio Città Futura

(ANSA) - Rome, January 22 - House MP Stefano Fassina, who leads a dissenting minority within Premier Matteo Renzi's Democratic Party (PD), said Thursday "it is no secret" the premier led a dramatic internal revolt that saw 101 PD lawmakers sink the party's official candidate to become Italian president, Romano Prodi, in a secret 2013 vote. "We are serious people, unlike those who...led 101 'snipers' two years ago," he said. "A part of the PD won't vote for the Italicum (electoral bill) in the Senate," Fassina told Rome's Radio Città Futura.
