Rome, April 27 - Former European commissioner Emma
Bonino is likely to be foreign minister in the government Enrico
Letta looks set to form, parliamentary sources said Saturday.
Another of the new government's highest positions, economy
minister, looks set to go to Bank of Italy Director General
Fabrizio Saccomanni.
Bonino, a leading member of the small Radical party
that promotes economic and social liberalism and champions
human-rights issues, was one of the people seen as a potential
head of State before Italian President Giorgio Napolitano was
re-elected last week.
She served as the European commissioner for health and
consumer protection from 1995 to 1999 after being nominated by
Berlusconi.
Bonino gained a good international international reputation
for her human rights work while she was European commissioner in
a role that also included overseeing the EC's department for
overseas aid and civil protection.
The 65-year-old served as European affairs and
international trade minister in Romano Prodi's 2006-2008
government too.
Italy has never had a woman foreign minister.
