Deputy Premier Alfano rebuts Saccomanni over taxes


(see related story)
Rome, June 14 - Deputy Premier and Interior
Minister Angelino Alfano on Friday contradicted Economy Minister
Fabrizio Saccomanni's assertion that it is not possible to avert
a 1% rise on value added tax scheduled for July and scrap an
unpopular property tax called IMU.
"We are fighting and we will fight to eliminate IMU on
people's main residences and to avoid the VAT increase," said
Alfano, who is also the secretary of ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party.
"It's not a whim, it's an objective we have set ourselves".
The PdL has threatened to pull its support and sink Premier
Enrico Letta's broad coalition government if it fails to scrap
IMU and refund the revenues raised from it in 2012 to respect
the key pledge Berlusconi made in the run-up to February's
inconclusive general election.
