Rome, May 13 - Premier Enrico Letta said Monday
that stopping ministers from taking part in electoral rallies or
televised debates not connected with their portfolios was a
sensible way to prevent tensions within his left-right
government exploding.
Letta and members of his centre-left Democratic Party are
unhappy that ministers from Silvio Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) party took part in a demonstration in Brescia on
Saturday against alleged persecution by some magistrates of the
76-year-old ex-premier.
The rally, which included the participation of Deputy
Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano, was called after
a Milan court failed to overturn a four-year conviction
Berlusconi was handed for fraud at his media empire.
"It's a decision of good sense to resolve the problems that
exist and which cannot be solved with a magic wand. We need
rules," said Letta at the end of a 24-hour retreat with his
ministers at a former abbey in Tuscany.
He added that the new government "should do a job that is
based as much as possible on a language of frankness and
reciprocal respect".
