Rome - AFP

Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta refused to resign on Wednesday, facing down an apparent challenge to his post from the new leader of his party Matteo Renzi and presenting his government's economic programme."It is absolutely not in my DNA to break with the continuity of service to this country," Letta said at a press conference after meeting Renzi, amid rumours of an imminent "relay" with the Democratic Party leader."You don't resign over gossip," Letta said, challenging the 39-year-old mayor of Florence, Renzi, to state his intentions "in the open" and avoid "palace manoeuvres"."Everyone has to express themselves clearly, especially someone who wants to come and take my place," he said.Renzi, who took up his post following a primary election in December, will address a key meeting on Thursday of the leadership of the Democratic Party that is expected to shed light on the political crisis.Letta said he would aim to fight unemployment and boost economic growth and was "proud" of his government's record despite operating in difficult conditions.Renzi has been highly critical of the 47-year-old Letta, who only came to power in April 2013 at the head of a fragile coalition with the centre-right and has struggled to drag Italy out of a painful recession.Renzi has accused Letta of being too slow in taking decisions and lacking the courage to confront key problems, such as the cost of Italy's bureaucracy.Letta meanwhile has reportedly accused Renzi of "betrayal" since there had been a tacit deal that Letta would stay in office until at least the end of 2014."Letta-Renzi: The Final Duel" read a headline in La Stampa daily, while the top-selling Corriere della Sera said: "Letta holds out but Renzi government looms".A majority of Italians would be against the Letta-Renzi switch -- 68 percent according to one recent poll.
