Rome, December 4 - The technocrat government led by
Premier Mario Monti on Tuesday won a vote of confidence in the
Senate, Italy's upper house, over a decree law aiming to curb
local-government spending.
It obtained the confidence of the assembly with 194 votes
in favour, 58 against and 4 abstentions.
The controversial measures, which include new provisions
for the use of public funds by political parties, were
introduced in the wake of a series of scandals involving the
alleged misuse of public funds by regional government
representatives on both sides of the political spectrum.
The decree law must now return to the Chamber of Deputies
for a new reading and vote of confidence following changes made
during examination by the Senate.
The provision must be converted into law before December 9,
when the 60-day validity of the decree law expires.
