Italian premier hails new era of reform

Rome, May 29 - Speaking to the Senate in Rome on Wednesday, Premier Enrico Letta hailed a new era of reform begun with the establishment of his right-left government, and called for empowering Italian institutions to make more decisions on their own. Letta said the process of reform "begun last April 22" - when his government was sworn in - gives Italy "a historic opportunity that must absolutely be taken and that we can take because it is within our reach". Letta declared, "We can give more decision-making capacity and representation to our institutions" and explained, "We need institutions that make decisions more rapidly". "This is the main objective and one of the main structural reforms (necessary) to make our country able to decide, to reinforce the quality of our democracy" and to respond to citizens that in the last election "harshly criticized us too," Letta explained.
