Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — The Italian government is facing inner turmoil as the current prime minister, Enrico Letta, faced calls to resign from within his own party. He relented on Friday.

Assemblea Nazionale del PDReuters reported that fellow center-left politicians of his Democratic Party called for Letta’s resignation and were ultimately successful.

Now, some believe that the appointment of another leader to head the coalition government, particularly Matteo Renzi, is inevitable. But, Letta’s removal was due to overseeing slow economic growth, which had Italians upset.

Italy, which is the euro zone’s third-largest economy, has not grown as analysts and Italians had hoped. It does not help that the political instability at the top has unsettled the markets themselves.
