Rome, April 24 - Deputy Secretary Enrico Letta will
get "convinced" support from his division-ridden Democratic
Party after being given a mandate to form a new government from
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on Wednesday.
There are fears internal rifts within the PD will mean the
broad coalition government Letta will try to form will be weak
and short-lived if it ever comes to life.
Pier Luigi Bersani quit as PD leader at the weekend after
two candidates he proposed to be Italy's president, former
Senate Speaker Franco Marini and former premier Romano Prodi,
were scuppered by internal party revolts.
"The mandate given to Enrico Letta hands the PD a great
responsibility," the centre-left party's House whip Roberto
Speranza said.
"It is necessary to give the country a government capable
of resolving the great national emergencies".
The PD's Senate whip echoed those sentiments.
"Enrico Letta has the personality, political, balance,
competence and experience to govern Italy for the best," said
Luigi Zanda.
"He has a personality that unites and it creates cohesion
within the PD too.
"The Democratic Party will support the executive that
Enrico Letta will lead with conviction".
