Matteo Renzi quits after losing reform referendum

Renzi, the Italian prime minister, quits after losing the constitutional referendum.

“No” vote won. Renzi: “I lost”. “No” is clearly ahead in exit polls of constitutional referendum. According to the fourth exit poll, the Yes is at 40-42% and No at 58-60%.

Immediate reactions: Matteo Salvini, leader of the populistic party Northern League exults “Great victory, Renzi should resign,” he said. Renato Brunetta is of the same opinion: “If the data of exit polls are confirmed, this is a great victory of the No and Renzi should resign,” tweeted the leader of Forza Italia.
