Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi talks to President Sergio Mattarella before a ceremony led by Pope Francis to close the Holy Door marking the closing of the Catholic Jubilee Year of Mercy in Saint Peter's Basilica at the VaticanBy Giselda Vagnoni and Steve Scherer ROME (Reuters) - Italy's President Sergio Mattarella wants parliament to draft a new electoral law before any ballot is held, a source close to the president said on Tuesday, a move likely to delay any vote after Prime Minister Matteo Renzi resigns. Renzi said he would step down after losing a referendum on constitutional reform on Sunday, but Mattarella asked him to stay on until parliament passes the 2017 budget, a vote scheduled for Wednesday.. The next parliamentary election is not scheduled until 2018 but on Tuesday there was growing consensus among party leaders for it to be held a year earlier. Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said the vote should be held in February.
