Rimini, August 20 - Italy's defence minister said
Tuesday he "could not imagine anyone thinking of toppling the
government".
Mario Mauro, a moderate with the Civic Choice party, is
formerly of the center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party of
Silvio Berlusconi.
The PdL and the center-left Democratic Party (PD) are the
majority partners in an unprecedented coalition government
deemed highly volatile since its conception in April to break a
two-month parliamentary deadlock following inconclusive February
elections.
Mauro was questioned about its stability in the wake of
Berlusconi receiving earlier this month his first-ever
definitive criminal conviction, this time for tax fraud, after
years of legal entanglements ranging from charges of sex with a
minor and abuse of office to bribing a lawmaker to topple a
government.
Next month the Senate must vote to ratify a six-year ban
from office for his tax-fraud conviction.
Berlusconi's supporters have repeatedly threatened or
suggested bringing down the executive if the ban is upheld.
