Italian Prime Minister resigns after EU referendum loss
4 DEC 2016. Italy is the latest country to reject the establishment after Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi conceded the referendum and resigned. A shock poll by Demos in the week predicted an 11 percentage point margin in the south of the country, according to a Demos poll. The vote could prompt an exit from the European Union and rejection would follow results in the Brexit referendum and the U.S. presidency race in citizens turning their back on the political status quo.
