(ANSA) – ROME, APR 12 – Democratic Party (PD) leader Enrico
Letta said Monday that, under his leadership, the centre-left
group will press for the so-called Zan bill to combat homophobia
to be approved and it will also seek Jus Soli legislation
granting automatic Italian citizenship to the children of
migrants born in Italy.
    Matteo Salvini’s right-wing League party is against both of
these proposals and has said the stability of Premier Mario
Draghi’s broad coalition government could be affected by efforts
to get them through parliament.
    “I’ve heard people say what are you thinking talking about Jus
Soli and the Zan bill while we are in a pandemic,” said
ex-premier Letta, who recently ended a long hiatus from
frontline politics to take over the helm of the PD.
    “But the issue of rights is fundamental today and tomorrow.
    “It is a question of the country’s modernity.
    “We will continue our battle on these issues with great energy”.
