Rome, November 8 - The Italian government intends
to approve new measures banning people with a definitive
criminal conviction from standing for political office in time
for elections next year, three ministers said on Thursday.
The government has the task of drawing up the provisions
under the terms of new anti-corruption legislation approved by
parliament last week.
On Thursday Interior Minister Annamaria Cancellieri,
Justice Minister Paola Severino and Minister for Public
Administration Filippo Patroni Griffi held preparatory talks
centred on the crimes for which would-be candidates would be
banned from running for election.
In this way the executive "intends to get a headstart on
the work of drawing up the provision which cannot be approved by
the council of ministers until the anti-corruption law has come
into force," said the ministers in a joint statement.
The law was signed by President Giorgio Napolitano on
Wednesday and must now be published in the official Gazette,
entering into force 15 days thereafter.
