Political future on line, Italy's Renzi launches referendum campaign | Reuters

ROME Prime Minister Matteo Renzi launched his campaign on Saturday to win an October referendum on constitutional reform, staking his political future on an attempt to finally give Italy stable governments. Recent opinion polls suggest the electorate will reject his proposal to streamline the parliamentary system and strip Italy's regions of some of their decision-making powers. The 41-year-old prime minister has said he will stand down if he loses, a gamble that could usher in a new era of political chaos and revive market turbulence in the euro zone's third-largest economy. #Economy #Italy #Argentina #Entertainment #political
