Italy's Renzi says not hopeful of reaching new electoral pact with parties
The head of Italy's ruling Democratic Party, Matteo Renzi, said on Friday he was pessimistic over the chances of reaching another parliamentary accord on a new electoral law and made no mention of whether he wanted an early election.
Speaking the day after a cross-party pact on a new voting system collapsed in parliament, Renzi said the existing electoral law could be used with just a few technical adjustments.

Blaming the anti-system 5-Star Movement for the collapse of the pact, Renzi said the coalition government would now focus on the country's main problems, such as employment, adding that there was much to do in the coming "weeks and months".
