Letta govt expected to be sworn in Saturday

Rome, April 26 - Tapped premier Enrico Letta's new left-right reform government is expected to be sworn in Saturday, sources among his his staff said Friday. Letta has been tasked by newly re-elected President Giorgio Napolitano to forge an unprecedented alliance between his centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party to tackle deep economic woes and pass long-awaited reforms including giving Italy an electoral law to produce a clear winner. A general election in February produced a hung parliament and two months of stalemate. Letta is set to start writing a speech Friday to gain parliament's confidence Monday, the sources said. The 46-year-old acting leader of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) is mulling who should be in his 18-strong ministerial team amid opposition from both the PD and PdL to some of the touted names.
