Florence, August 14 - Supporters of ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi and his center-right People of Freedom (PdL)
party may be out in force lobbying for his pardon, but a
political opponent said Wednesday that he will be fighting back.
Berlusconi's forces will be flying aircraft with banners
demanding his pardon during Thursday's Ferragosto holiday, said
Enrico Rossi, president of the Democratic Party (PD) in Tuscany.
But in Tuscany, Rossi said that he intends to counter that
with hand-delivered flyers supporting the Constitution and rule
of law.
"I will be in (the resort town of) Viareggio...to support
the distribution of leaflets," supporting the courts in their
conviction of Berlusconi on fraud charges.
His comments, posted on Facebook, came as Italian President
Giorgio Napolitano said he would consider if it were possible to
pardon Berlusconi for his one-year conviction for tax fraud as
well as a ban from public office.
Opponents say Berlusconi should not be pardoned, but some
fear that if he does not get his way, he will tear apart the
fragile coalition government that now exists between the PdL and
the PD.
Rossi, like other PD lawmakers, noted that in his statement
Napolitano stressed that all convictions must be implemented
while the ex-premier's allies welcomed Napolitano's opening to
the possibility of a pardon.
The Senate is scheduled to vote next month on ejecting the
PdL leader whether or not his ban is upheld.
