(ANSA) – ROME, APR 6 – New Democratic Party (PD) leader
Enrico Letta on Tuesday met fellow ex-premier Matteo Renzi, the
leader of the centrist Italia Viva (IV) group, for talks.
    Sources said that the leaders agreed on the need to keep backing
Premier Mario Draghi’s broad coalition government and prioritize
the vaccination campaign and aid for households and businesses
affected by the COVID-19 emergency.
    But they disagreed about forming an alliance with the 5-Star
Movement (M5S), which Letta is on favour of but Renzi is not,
sources said.
    The PD, IV and the M5S were allied in backing ex-premier
Giuseppe Conte’s second government until IV brought it down by
pulling its support at the start of the year.
    Letta recently returned to the fray to take the helm of the PD,
having stepped back from frontline politics after then-PD-leader
Renzi brought down his executive in 2014 in order to take over
the helm of government himself.
    Renzi subsequently split from the PD to form his own party.
