Formigoni says no plans to resign


(ANSA) - Milan, October 11 - Lombardy Governor Roberto
Formigoni says he has no plans to resign from his
scandal-plagued government.
"I have not made any mistakes," Formigoni said Thursday.
"My region is the only one with the accounts in order".
Formigoni was responding to questions posed as his
administration appears close to collapse after a series of
corruption scandals, including accusations an executive bought
votes from the mafia in 2010 regional elections.
Formigoni, a member of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's
People of Freedom (PdL) party, is himself under investigation
for alleged corruption linked to health-sector contracts, making
him one of 14 members of the regional executive or assembly to
be probed in various cases.
The governor is under pressure from the regionalist
Northern League, whose regional councillors said they were
quitting Wednesday night to try to force him out.
Formigoni called for "dialogue" with the League Thursday
but said he would replace the councillors if it pulled out of
the PdL alliance across the north.
League chief Roberto Maroni went into talks Thursday with
Formigoni and PdL secretary Angelino Alfano at the Berlusconi
party headquarters in Rome.
The League is a major power in the north although its
standing has been hit by a scandal earlier this year involving
the family of ex-leader and founder Umberto Bossi.
