Italian premier Matteo Renzi gestures prior to a confidence vote in the Chamber of Deputies, in Rome, Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014.

Renzi needed at least 155 votes to clinch the victory, one of two mandatory confidence votes. The second vote, in the Chamber of Deputies, is expected later Tuesday. Renzi's coalition has a comfortable majority in the lower chamber.
