Quagliariello says president's words not enough

Rome, August 16 - President Giorgio Napolitano's
words urging Italy's fragile coalition government to hold itself
together are not enough to achieve that goal by themselves, the
Constitutional Reform minister said Friday.
Instead, the government led by Premier Enrico Letta must
find concrete ways to protect itself, Gaetano Quagliariello said
in an interview with ANSA.
"It must itself ensure its own survival," and not rely too
heavily on the president, said Quagliariello, who belongs to
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party.
That means members of different political parties within
government must find ways to work together.
The already shaky coalition has been threatened by the
recent court decision upholding a fraud conviction against
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
Some members of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) say
they cannot work with a party led by a convicted criminal, while
members of the PdL party want broad government support in
forcing a pardon for Berlusconi and protection of his Senate
seat.
