Rome, May 21 - A senior politician in the
center-left Democratic Party (PD) on Tuesday said he was opposed
to enforcing a law which would make Silvio Berlusconi, head of
the centre-right Party of Freedom (PdL) party - the other main
group in the current left-right alliance backing Premier Enrico
Letta's government - ineligible for public office.
Speaking on the sidelines of a conference, Luciano Violante
- a former House speaker - said: ''Three or four times in past
parliamentary terms, the centre left voted in a certain way
(against ineligibility). If there are no new developments, I
don't see why we should change this stance''.
The ineligibility issue hit Letta fledgling administration
on May 16, when PD Senate whip Luigi Zanda was he was personally
in favour of the application of a 1957 law barring the holder of
government licenses, like the ones Berlusconi has for his TV
networks, from holding public office.
An interim spokeswoman for the PdL, Anna Maria Bernini,
responded to Zanda with a veiled threat, calling his words
''mines planted under the political ground the Letta government
is acting on''.
