ROME (AP) — Italy's president has summoned Democratic leader Matteo Renzi for a meeting Monday where he is expected to receive the mandate to form a new government.

President Giorgio Napolitano's office said Sunday the appointment was set for 10:30 a.m. (0930 GMT; 4:30 a.m. EST).

Renzi was reportedly traveling Sunday afternoon to Rome. The 39-year-old rising political star engineered the collapse of Premier Enrico Letta's government last week to try to lead a coalition government himself.

If he gets tapped, Renzi will have to try to forge a solid coalition government with center-right and centrist parties, since his own Democrats don't command a reliable majority in both houses. Renzi would then have to win mandatory confidence votes in Parliament, before he could take the helm of the economically-limping country.
