Reading Time: < 1 minute

ROME, March 4 (Reuters) – The head of Italy’s centre-left Democratic Party (PD) Nicola Zingaretti said on Thursday he would resign as group leader following a recent bout of infighting over key positions both within the government and the PD itself.

“In the next few hours I will write to the party chair to formally resign,” he wrote on Facebook.

“I am ashamed that within the PD, the party of which I am leader, for 20 days people have only been talking about jobs and primary elections, when in Italy the third wave of COVID is exploding.”
