Renzi an 'asset' to Democratic Party, says whip Speranza

Rome, September 2 - Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi is "an asset to the Democratic Party (PD)...however the next leader needs to relaunch the party," PD Lower House whip Roberto Speranza said on Monday. "When it is time for elections, we will hold primaries to choose the candidate for the position," Speranza said in an interview with Italian daily La Repubblica. Renzi, a rising star on the conservative spectrum of the PD, said on Sunday that he was "considering" vying for the leadership of the party. "I am available, but I have to be voted in by the constituents," he said at a PD rally in Genova on Sunday.
