Rome, August 2 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi told
his People of Freedom (PdL) party members on Friday that justice
reforms must be made or that he would push for a return to
elections.
Berlusconi maintains he is being persecuted by magistrates
after a tax-fraud jail term was upheld by Italy's supreme court
Thursday.
"We have to ask for elections soon to win. Let's reflect on
the best road to take to reach this objective," Berlusconi said.
Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said
at the meeting that PdL MPs were considering stepping down.
"If we have to defend our ideals and history, and those of
the president that coincides with ours, we are ready to resign,"
Alfano said.
Before Thursday's decision by Italy's supreme court to
uphold a tax-fraud ruling against the ex-premier, some hawks in
the PdL had called for party's lawmakers to quit parliament en
masse, a move that would sink the government, if the conviction
were confirmed.
