Rome, November 13 - Democratic Party (PD) leader
Matteo Renzi on Monday made an overture to the leftwing MDP
party to form an alliance ahead of a general election early next
year.
Many MDP members used to be in the PD but left due to
hostility to Renzi.
"There is more harmony with people with whom we have been
divided by arguments and controversies than with our traditional
rivals, bnot just because we govern 14 regions together, but
also because we have done many things together," Renzi told a
crunch PD meeting.
"It won't be the PD that puts vetoes on the broadest possible
coalition.
"Maybe we have different ideas about the Good School (reform)
but not out the need for full time (work) in the south as it is
in the north".
Former Milan Mayor Giuliano Pisapia and former PD leader and
ex Rome mayor have both launched appeals for unity of forces on
the left, which is in disarray following a poor showing at
regional elections in Sicily.
But leftwing figures are said to be skeptical about the
chances of forming an alliance.
They include Lower House Speaker Laura Boldrini and Senate
Speaker Piero Grasso, who recently left the PD in protest at how
a new election law was pushed through parliament.
