Renzi says gridlocked Italy 'wasting time'


Florence, April 3 - Florence's centre-left Mayor
Matteo Renzi on Wednesday said that Italy was wasting time with
no end in sight to the political gridlock that has gripped the
nation since February's inconclusive general election.
"We are going through a political-institutional period in
which time is being wasted, while the world is asking us to run
twice as fast" said Renzi, who is expected to challenge to lead
the centre left if Italy returns to the polls later this year
after losing the last primary to the head of his Democratic
Party (PD), Pier Luigi Bersani.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano at the weekend asked a
group of 10 'wise men' to try to break the stalemate by
producing a government programme capable of winning cross-party
This came after Bersani, whose coalition came first in the
election but failed to win a working majority in the Senate,
admitted he had failed in his bid to convince the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) to back his programme
for a "government of change".
Bersani has rejected calls from ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi to form a grand coalition with his centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party.
"A political world that cannot run produces solutions that
it cannot put into practice," added Renzi, who was sceptical
from the start about Bersani's bid to reach out to the M5S.
"Time is up, lots of companies are on the edge of coming to
the end.
"What's needed is political credibility and responses on
the issues of work or we risk losing the road to get back home".
