(ANSA) - Rome, December 5 - Outgoing Premier Matteo Renzi said that the Italian people had spoken "in a clear, unequivocal way" by rejecting his government's Constitutional reform in Sunday's referendum. "We took this reform to the vote, we weren't convincing, but we leave with no regrets," Renzi told a news conference. "As was clear from the start, my experience in government finishes here... I'm proud that of the opportunity the government gave the citizens to express themselves about the reform. Many people came closer to the Constitution (as a result)."
