Rome, May 8 - Former justice minister Francesco
'Nitto' Palma was elected chairman of the Senate justice
committee Wednesday.
Palma, who briefly served as justice minister in the 2011
cabinet of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, won on the fourth
ballot.
The election of the former anti-Mafia prosecutor - who is
seen as a relatively rare right-winger in Italy's politicized
judiciary - was loudly applauded by members of Berlusconi's
People of Freedom (PdL) party.
He won the vote without the support of the Democratic Party
(PD), whose leader Enrico Letta is Italy's new premier.
That appears set to stir conflicts on justice issues
between the parties of the left and the right in parliament.
The PD and PdL are the main partners in Italy's new
government.
Justice is a hot-button issue because of Berlusconi's many
legal woes and his contention that allegedly left-wing
prosecutors and judges must be brought to heel.
