Another referendum and the premier. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi like David Cameron quits as premier after suffering a heavy defeat in a referendum to reform the constitution
The Italian leader said he took responsibility for the outcome, and said the No camp must now make clear proposals. With most ballots counted, the No vote leads with 60% against 40% for Yes, BBC reported.
The turnout was nearly 70%, in a vote that was seen as a chance to register discontent with the prime minister.
“Good luck to us all,” Mr Renzi told reporters. He said he would tell a cabinet meeting on Monday afternoon that he was resigning, then tender his resignation to the Italian president.
