President summons center-left's Renzi as Italy seeks new government
By Steve Scherer ROME (Reuters) - Italian President Giorgio Napolitano summoned Matteo Renzi to a meeting on Monday at which he is expected to ask the center-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 a.m. (0930 GMT) in Rome. Enrico Letta resigned as prime minister on Friday after his Democratic Party (PD) forced him to make way for Renzi, 39, who is promising radical reforms to the euro zone's third-biggest economy and a government that can survive until 2018. "Renzi committed an original sin, which is that he will become prime minister without an election," said Giovanni Orsina, deputy head of Rome's Luiss School of Government.
