Rome, April 19 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi
blasted the Democratic Party (PD) on Friday, saying that it had
violated an agreement by shelving Senate Speaker Franco Marini
as the party's presidential candidate.
People of Freedom Party (PdL) leader Berlusconi said that
the PD had "gone back on their word".
Earlier on Friday the PD tagged former European Commission
president and twice Italian premier Romano Prodi to be its new
presidential candidate after Marini, the PD's first candidate,
failed to prevail in the first two presidential ballots on
Thursday because of an internal party rift.
Bersani consulted Berlusconi before proposing Marini and
some suggested there had been a "shady deal" which saw the
ex-premier's PdL party backing Marini, an 80-year-old member of
the Catholic wing of the PD.
