Four issues for first 100 days says Letta


Siena, May 13 - Four issues will top the
government's 'road map' in its first 100 days in office, Premier
Enrico Letta said after a one-day bonding and planning 'retreat'
in a Tuscan abbey Monday.
The issues are: creating jobs for young people; agreeing on
changes to the IMU property tax which ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi wants scrapped and rebated; tax breaks to encourage
entrepreneurs; and political reforms to cut spending and abuse
which have created widespread public disenchantment.
He also said Italy needed to change its electoral law and
strip the Senate of law-making powers, turning it into a
regional assembly, to avoid gridlock like the two-month
stalemate that followed February's inconclusive general
A special body called a convention will be set up to agree
constitutional reforms and will be led by the House and Senate
Constitutional Affairs committee chiefs.
A panel of "external" experts to give the convention reform
proposals will be set up shortly
Previous attempts to remove the powers of the Senate - at
present equally as powerful as the House - have foundered on the
upper house's reluctance to vote itself out of existence.
