Renzi should stay in power even in defeat - Italian minister | Reuters

By Crispian Balmer and Giselda Vagnoni | ROME ROME Prime Minister Matteo Renzi should not leave Italy in the lurch if he loses a forthcoming referendum but should remain in charge to help overcome the fallout, Industry Minister Carlo Calenda said on Friday.Renzi says he will quit if voters reject his constitutional reform package at the Dec. 4 ballot, and financial markets are jittery over the prospect of political instability as opinion polls point to probable defeat for the government.In a interview with Reuters, Calenda said he remained optimistic that the 'Yes' camp would prevail, arguing that Italians would ultimately back the plans to curb the role of the upper house Senate and reduce the powers of the regions. But he said Renzi should back away from his threat to resign regardless."My personal opinion is that Renzi should stay," he said, speaking in his 1930s-era office on Rome's upmarket Via Veneto, with huge designs by Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci covering the walls.Some opposition parties want immediate national elections a year ahead of schedule if Renzi loses the referendum. #United States #Government #United Kingdom #President #Foreign policy #italian

Peru slams U.N. agency for hiring former first lady under investigation | Reuters

LIMA Peru rebuked the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization on Wednesday for hiring former first lady Nadine Heredia as a Geneva-based director while she is a suspect in a money laundering inquiry.The South American country's Foreign Affairs Ministry issued a statement expressing its "displeasure and protest" over the appointment, which comes amid allegations by public prosecutors that Heredia and her husband, former president Ollanta Humala, took illicit funds from the government of Venezuela and Brazilian construction companies."We see this as interference in a public investigation of enormous national sensitivity," Foreign Affairs Minister Ricardo Luna said on local broadcaster RPP.Earlier this year a judge barred Heredia from leaving Peru while her finances were probed, but prosecutors have yet to press charges against her or Humala in the high-profile case.Peru's objections come as current President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has sought to shore up his anti-corruption credentials after his adviser was ousted for appearing to plot corrupt acts in leaked audio and a deputy minister resigned after facing possible jail time in a separate graft case.The FAO defended its decision to hire Heredia as director of the agency's liaison office in Geneva, saying travel restrictions for her expired in October and to its knowledge were not extended. "The appointment of Ms Heredia was transparent applying ordinary competitive procedures and based on a rigorous selection process," the FAO said in a statement. "The case in Peru does not pose any impediments to her performing her new role."Heredia was a FAO special ambassador in 2013, tasked with promoting the consumption of quinoa, a protein-rich Andean seed grown by Quechua-speaking farmers in Peru and Bolivia #United States #India #Business #Government #lifestyle #article

DAMASCUS Staffan De Mistura, the United Nations secretary general's Syria envoy said on Sunday he had proposed that jihadist fighters should leave Aleppo but that the government should let the local administration in rebel-held areas of the city stay in place.Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moalem earlier on Sunday ruled that out, saying it was a "violation of our sovereignty", but De Mistura told reporters in Damascus that he believed such measures could be temporary and that Aleppo should be treated as a special case.
