Italian centre-left leader Matteo Renzi is close to naming the members of his government and is expected to meet President Giorgio Napolitano on Friday to confirm his cabinet list, a source in Renzi's Democratic Party (PD) said. Confirmation of the list would allow the government to be sworn in by the weekend, ahead of a confidence vote in parliament expected on Monday.
