Trieste, April 10 - Matteo Renzi, Florence mayor
and rising star in the center-left Democratic Party (PD), said
Wednesday he hopes Italians hold another general election "as
soon as possible" for a new government.
"If it were up to me, we would return to elections tomorrow
morning," Renzi said at a campaign rally in Trieste.
A touted future leader of the PD, Renzi as of late has been
highly critical of party leader Pier Luigi Bersani, who has
consistently refused to form a grand coalition with ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi of the center-right People of Freedom (PdL)
party in order to cobble together a government out of the
various parties that won seats in February's divisive general
election.
Renzi has complained the parties - including his own - have
been "wasting time" while Italy sinks ever deeper into the
economic and social mire.
He is apparently becoming more insistent that a new
election be held if no agreement can be reached.
The only alternative, he repeated Wednesday, would be a
Bersani-Berlusconi pact reached "as fast as possible".
"Every day that is lost is time lost for Italy," he added.
