Renzi confident they’ll approve birthright citizenship law

Matteo Renzi, the Secretary of the Democratic Party (PD) has said his party and the Nuovo Centrodestra (Ncd) will govern together for the time necessary to approve the birthright citizenship law and the Civil Partnership law.

Matteo RenziHome Affairs Minister Angelino Alfano, who is also the leader of Ncd has of late rejected calls for citizenship law reform saying it’s not urgent.

Interviewed last Saturday by Fabio Fazio in “Che tempo che fa” TV programme on Raitre, Mr. Alfano wondered why immigration and citizenship law reforms were Democratic Party’s top priorities.

Commenting on calls for birthright citizenship law, Mr. Alfano said they were against making Italy a delivery room where whoever is born becomes an Italian citizen.

Asked whether the Democratic Party still intended to govern with Ncd, a party holding opposing views on immigration and rights, Mr. Renzi sounded confident that they’ll do so.
