Italy politicians thrash out plans for post-crisis leader | Reuters

By Antonella Cinelli and Isla Binnie | ROME ROME Political parties made their cases to Italy's president on Saturday for ways out of a government crisis prompted by Matteo Renzi's resignation as prime minister following his defeat in a referendum on constitutional reform.Renzi's Democratic Party (PD) was planning to use a meeting with President Sergio Mattarella later in the day to argue that Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni, 62, should lead the new government, four party sources told Reuters.If he gets the nod, Gentiloni could take office next week and would face an immediate crisis in the banking sector, with the country's third-largest lender, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, likely to need state intervention to avoid collapse.Mattarella, a 75-year-old former constitutional court judge, must decide if someone can lead the country to national elections scheduled for 2018, or whether the next government will serve only until early elections in spring.Italians rejected Renzi's constitutional reform in a popular vote on Dec. 4, leading the 41 year-old to fulfil a pledge to resign as premier. #Politics #United States #Economy #Business #Middle East #markets #Italy

Parties make their cases to Italy president for new leader | Reuters

By Antonella Cinelli and Isla Binnie | ROME ROME Political parties made their cases to Italy's head of state on Saturday for candidates to lead the country out of a government crisis prompted by Matteo Renzi's resignation as prime minister.President Sergio Mattarella, a 75 year-old former constitutional court judge, must decide if someone can lead the country to elections scheduled for 2018, or whether an interim government could serve until early elections in spring.Italians rejected Renzi's constitutional reform in a popular vote on Dec. 4, leading the 41 year-old to fulfil a pledge to resign as premier if he failed to rally support for it.Mattarella started with smaller parliamentary groups on Thursday, gearing up to finish with Renzi's Democratic Party (PD), which holds a majority in both houses, later on Saturday.Interior Minister Angelino Alfano, whose small centre-right grouping in the ruling coalition met Mattarella around midday, said his party would support a new mandate for Renzi, although a parliamentary source said last week the PD leader had ruled out - for the moment - staying on as a caretaker #Politics #science #Europe #markets #Italy #Entertainment #article

Italy, Greece face off against easterners in EU migration feud | Reuters

By Gabriela Baczynska | BRUSSELS BRUSSELS Eastern European Union states remain at loggerheads with "frontline" countries such as Greece and Italy over sharing the burden of caring for asylum-seekers reaching EU frontiers, officials said on Friday.Largely uncontrolled arrival of some 1.4 million people from the Middle East and Africa in the past two years, many fleeing Syria's civil war, has triggered bitter EU infighting. Dispute centres on how countries far from the main migration routes should help frontline peers like Greece, Italy and Malta. #India #Africa #Italy #Hungary #Austria
