(ANSA) - Rome, July 17 - Italian Premier Mario Monti asked
the governor of Sicily to confirm his resignation Tuesday amid
the region's debt woes.
"Monti has written a letter to Governor Raffaele Lombardo
to receive his confirmation of his intention, declared publicly,
to resign July 31," a statement from the premier's office said.
Monti highlighted that Sicily's debt problems, "which may
push it into default," made the situation urgent, according to
the statement.
Lombardo is facing charges of colluding with the mafia and
announced in May that he was resigning.
Prosecutors in April presented a request to try Lombardo
and his brother Angelo, an MP for Lombardo's Movimento per
l'Autonomia (MpA) party, for allegedly swapped votes for favors
with Vincenzo Aiello, a prominent member of the powerful
Catania-based Santapaola clan.
Aiello was arrested in 2010 on a range of Mafia charges.
Lombardo has denied the accusations.
