Renzi Sets 100-Day Agenda After Designation as Italian Premier

Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi, Italy’s prime minister-designate, set to building a parliamentary majority by outlining a 100-day legislative burst, starting with a voting-law overhaul this month.

Once a new electoral system is in place, Renzi promised measures in March to stimulate hiring. Those would be followed by policies to reduce bureaucracy and modify the tax code, he said today after President Giorgio Napolitano gave him the mandate to form a government. Renzi will meet with political-party leaders the next two days before returning to Napolitano with his cabinet to officially take office.
