Italy would pay the price of govt crisis, PD leader says


Rome, August 20 - The leader of the Democratic
Left party (PD) Guglielmo Epifani said Tuesday he was worried
about a government crisis which would cripple Italy and cancel
sacrifices made by Italians under harsh austerity measures.
"I am worried for the country", Epifani told the online
paper in an interview on the risks of a
crisis if ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi loses his Senate seat
because of a recent tax-fraud conviction and ban from office.
"I am worried that a crisis could take the country
backwards and most of all cancel efforts made by citizens, who
were those who paid the highest price".
Epifani on Tuesday met Premier Enrico Letta as leading
members of the conservative and progressive coalitions
supporting Italy's unprecedented left-right government continued
to fight over Berlusconi's political future.
Members of the three-time premier's People of Freedom (PdL)
party have threatened to sink the cabinet if their leader is
ejected from the Senate after his August 1 conviction for tax
fraud on film rights at his Mediaset TV empire.
Letta told an Austrian broadcaster on Tuesday that economic
recovery was behind the corner and it would be a "mistake" to
disregard this.
"I trust the fact that Berlusconi's party will make its
decisions and will take responsibility for its decisions", Letta
He said the PD would make the "right" choice on ratifying
Berlusconi's ban in next month's vote in the Senate.
