(ANSA) - Rome, July 18 - Premier Mario Monti met President
Giorgio Napolitano in Rome on Wednesday for what the head of
state described beforehand as "an urgent meeting".
ANSA sources said the two men were having talks on the
situation on heavily indebted Sicily and on government bills in
parliament regarding economic reforms to help Italy haul itself
out of the debt crisis.
On Tuesday Monti sent a letter to Sicilian Governor
Raffaele Lombardo asking him to confirm his plans to resign by
the end of this month, stressing the urgency of the situation as
the region risks defaulting.
Italy's Audit Court said the region has debts of 21 billion
euros.
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 swapping votes for favors
with Vincenzo Aiello, a prominent member of the powerful
Catania-based Santapaola clan.
Lombardo, who is set to meet Monti next Tuesday, has denied
the accusations.
