Rome, May 17 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi
claimed victory in the battle over Italy's IMU propery tax in a
Facebook video message on Friday.
"The left was sure to win, and instead it now has to deal
with our agenda: IMU will be dropped and already by June will
not have to be paid," Berlusconi said.
Premier Enrico Letta said Friday that his government had
given its "first responses" to "families, firms and workers" in
recession-hit Italy by approving a decree that suspends the June
rate of property tax IMU.
He added that the decree featured measures to find one
billion euros to refinance the budget for CIG unemployment
benefits, which is danger of running out within months as
applications soar.
Interior Minister Angelino Alfano of Berlusconi's People
of Freedom (PdL) party, one of the two main parties backing
Letta's new right-left government, said he was "extremely
satisfied" with its first move to reform the unpopular IMU
property tax.
Contention over the removal of IMU has been one of the
main issues straining ties between Letta's Democratic Party (PD)
and PdL, and has been used by Berlusconi's party as a threat to
topple the recently formed government that brought the two sides
together.
