Milan, October 22 - Besieged Lombardy governor
Roberto Formigoni on Monday gave the names of three members of
the executive that will be in charge of the region around Milan
until elections.
Formigoni dissolved his executive last week and called snap
elections after it was hit by a string of corruption probes,
including one in which he is suspected of wrongdoing related to
health-sector contracts. He denies any wrongdoing.
The governor, a member of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's
People of Freedom (PdL) party, had said the caretaker
administration would be made up of non-political technocrats.
But he announced via Twitter on Monday that Andrea Ghibelli
of the Northern League will keep his position as deputy
governor.
Formigoni was forced to dissolve the regional council after
the League, which has itself been hit by corruption scandals,
withdrew its support.
The governor also said that Mario Melazzini, the president
of the Italian Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis association, and
Andrea Gilardoni, a lecturer at Milan's Bocconi University, will
be part of the new executive.
He is expected to name the rest of the new team later on
Monday.
It has not yet been established when the early regional
elections will be held.
