Berlusconi 'not giving up' center-right leadership

Rome, August 19 - Three-time premier Silvio
Berlusconi said Monday his leadership of the centre right would
not be threatened by his first definitive criminal conviction
earlier this month and a ban from office.
"I'm resisting! I'm not giving up," Berlusconi told
supporters on his Facebook page.
"Rest assured that I am not stepping aside, I will remain
the head of the center right. I will pursue the interests of
Italians and the country until the very end. Go forth with
courage".
Berlusconi's tax-fraud conviction came with a four-year
jail term that, due to an amnesty, was commuted to one year of
either community service or house arrest, something the
ex-premier and sitting Senator must decide in October.
The supreme Cassation Court decision also came with a
six-year ban from public office, which must be ratified in the
Senate next month before it becomes effective.
Given the center left's majority in the Upper House of
parliament, the ban is expected to be upheld.
