Italian premier Matteo Renzi, left, greets Democrats Party lawmaker Pierluigi Bersani as he arrives prior to a confidence vote in the Chamber of Deputies, in Rome, Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014. The Senate voted 169-139 to confirm Renzi's broad coalition, which ranges from his center-left Democrats to center-right forces formerly loyal to ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi. Renzi needed at least 155 votes to clinch the victory, one of two mandatory confidence votes. The second vote, in the Chamber of Deputies, is expected later Tuesday. Renzi's coalition has a comfortable majority in the lower chamber. (AP Photo/Andrew Medichini) less
