President summons centre-left's Renzi as Italy seeks new government
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano summoned Matteo Renzi to a meeting on Monday at which he is expected to ask the centre-left leader to form a government that must overhaul one of the most troubled economies in the euro zone.

 

Napolitano is likely to ask the slick-talking mayor of Florence to form the country's 65th government since World War Two in the meeting, which a statement from the president's office said was scheduled for 10.30 am in Rome. (Reuters)
