Italy president mandates foreign minister to form new government

ROME, Dec 11 (Reuters) - Italy's president on Sunday gave Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni a mandate to try to form the country's new government.

The 62-year-old prime-minister designate is a key member of outgoing premier Matteo Renzi's Democratic Party. Renzi resigned on Wednesday after losing a referendum on constitutional reform on which he had staked his job. (Reporting By Philip Pullella)
