  7. Zingaretti formally hands in resignation

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 5 – Lazio Governor Nicola Zingaretti on
FRiday formally handed in his resignation as centre-left
Democratic Party (PD) leader to party chair Valentina Cuppi who
will take over the day-to-day running of the party until its
national assembly on March 13-14, the PD press office said.
    Zingaretti said earlier on Friday that he does not intend to
reconsider his shock decision to quit.
    Zingaretti complained of an “unending stream” of criticism from
within the party, which has many competing factions, as he
announced his resignation on Thursday.
    “I’m ashamed that in the PD, which I lead, they’ve only been
talking about posts and primaries for 20 days,” he said. Many PD
bigwigs have been calling on Zingaretti to reconsider the
surprise decision.
    The PD’s assembly must ratify the move on March 13-14 and there
has been talk of it rejecting the resignation. But Zingaretti
said Friday that a rejection of his resignation was not
contemplated by the party rules, adding that “a reconsideration
is not an issue and it will not happen”. (ANSA).
