Rome, April 24 - Enrico Letta, Italy's probable new
premier, says that he will begin meetings on Thursday with
various political leaders to try to forge a national government.
Wednesday, his first day on the job, Letta was sounding
optimistic despite the challenges ahead.
"The first afternoon of work tells me of all the great
difficulties, but I have also received so many messages of
encouragement that my spirit is refreshed," he said.
Letta said he must work quickly to begin the reforms
assigned by President Giorgio Napolitano, who gave the new
premier his mandate Wednesday morning.
Napolitano wants Letta, 46, to be the premier of a
government that has wide cross-party backing to end two months
of political deadlock after February's inconclusive general
election, with problems piling up for the recession-hit nation.
That mandate includes a series of reforms to Italy's
complex electoral laws.
If Letta judges that he has sufficient support, he is
likely to put forward a proposed new government for votes of
confidence in the Upper and Lower House later this week, so it
can then be sworn in.
