ROME [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/danilo-brazil-jersey/]Danilo Brazil Jersey[/url] , Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- When Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi attempts this week to form Italy's 63rd government in 68 years, he will face a bigger set of challenges with less of a track record than any of his predecessors.

Renzi, 39, has growing support nationally, but has still never been elected to a political office more important than that as mayor of Italy's ninth largest city.

While analysts said he showed deft negotiation skills in his battle to Enrico Letta to step down as prime minister last Friday [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/dani-alves-brazil-jersey/]Dani Alves Brazil Jersey[/url] , he does not have experience at a national level or, as a non-parliamentarian, the relationships in the national legislature to push deals through.

"Renzi's first challenge is going to simply form a government," said Fulco Lanchesterm, head of the department of political science at Rome's Sapienza University and a frequent commentator on political affairs.

"He will have to select a cabinet and face a confidence vote in parliament. And given his situation [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/casemiro-brazil-jersey/]Casemiro Brazil Jersey[/url] , this will not be as easy as it would be for many other (new prime ministers) in the past."

Renzi, who would become Italy's youngest prime minister ever, said he would start mulling over options on Tuesday, adding that while he understood the "urgency" of the situation that he would not be rushed in forming his government.

Assuming he is able to do it, he will lead a country with serious economic and political issues [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/blank-brazil-jersey/]Blank Brazil Jersey[/url] , and a public opinion that -- while it has a generally positive view of Renzi himself -- is, according to the polling firm Opinioni, "weary" of ineffective and short-lived governments.

The Renzi government will be Italy's third in less than a year.

"People are going to be looking for results in terms of job creation, economic growth, and political stability quickly [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/alisson-brazil-jersey/]Alisson Brazil Jersey[/url] ," said Opinioni's Maria Rossi.

Italy's troubles run deep: the country's economy has shrunk for three consecutive years, and shrunk by 17 percent in per capita terms over the last decade.

Despite early signs of a possible economic turnaround, the jobless rate continues to climb. Consumer confidence is near an all-time low. And the government's hands are tied by a massive debt level difficult to confront with tax levels already among the highest levels in Europe and government services already slashed to the bare minimum.

Renzi on Monday sketched out an ambitious series of goals.

After formally being asked by President Giorgio Napolitano to try to form a government, Renzi promised a new political rulebook by the end of this month and a new labor reform plan by the end of March.

He will reform the public administration in April, and address the prickly issue of finance and revenue reform in May. The first indications are that markets and international investors are giving Renzi a tentative thumbs-up.

Yields for Italian bonds [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/alex-sandro-brazil-jersey/]Alex Sandro Brazil Jersey[/url] , a barometer of investors' confidence, drifted lower after Napolitano officially asked Renzi to form a government, with the benchmark 10-year bond reaching its lowest yield since 2006. Stock prices also rose on Milan's Italian Stock Exchange, but even then the day's rally lost steam late.

HARARE, March 28 (Xinhua) -- The World Food Programme (WFP) said Tuesday it urgently required 2.3 million U.S. dollars to provide food assistance to refugees in Zimbabwe for the next nine months.

The WFP said in a statement the funding would allow it to provide cash transfers for the general refugee population.

In view of the increased energy and nutrient requirements of chronically ill people in the Tongogara Camp, the WFP would provide such persons with an additional food transfer, it added.

The appeal by the UN agency came at a time when there has been an influx of refugees from Mozambique into Tongogara Camp, with 3,500 Mozambicans fleeing political unrest having been documented in Zimbabwe last year alone.

This follows Zimbabwe's decision to allow asylum seekers settled in the buffer zone along the border between Zimbabwe and Mozambique to be moved either further to relatives in land or to Tongogara Refugee Camp.

Tongogara Refugee Camp is currently home to a total of 8,100 refugees from DR Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and recently Mozambique.

The populations are largely comprised of groups such as single women, single men, the elderly, chronically ill people, and unaccompanied minors with some 5 percent of assisted families being child-headed households.

British television star Caroline Aherne, who became a household name after starring in comedy hits The Royle Family [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/Customized/]Customized Brazil Soccer Jerseys[/url] , The Mrs Merton Show and The Fast Show, has died of cancer aged 52, her publicist announced Saturday.

"Caroline Aherne has sadly passed away, after a brave battle with cancer," said publicist Neil Reading.

"The Bafta award-winning writer and comedy actor died earlier today at her home in Timperley [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/]Brazil Soccer Jerseys[/url] , Greater Manchester. She was 52."

Little Britain star David Walliams was among many paying tribute, calling her a "true comedy genius," adding her work was "equally funny & touching."

Aherne revealed previous battles with cancer in 2014, saying: "I've had cancer and my brother's had cancer and we know how it affects people."

Both her and her brother were born with cancer of the retina. "My mum told us that only special people get cancer. I must be very special because I've had it in my lungs and my bladder as well," she said.

Aherne first hit small screens as a sharp-talking checkout girl in sketch program The Fast Show [url=http://www.brazilsoccerauthority.com/willian-brazil-jersey/]Willian Brazil Jersey[/url] , but later became famous for her elderly agony aunt alter-ego Mrs. Merton, who delivered subtle but deadly criticism to celebrities from behind a gentle exterior.

Her talents as a writer came to the fore during her work on sit-com The Royle Family, set almost exclusively in the living room of a working-class northern Englis.
