Rome, August 28 - Italy's political stability is
important for economic recovery, European Commissioner for
Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn told Bloomberg on
Wednesday.
Rehn said in an interview that everybody is aware Italy is
having political troubles but he is confident an attempt will be
made to ensure political stability which is key for economic
recovery.
Italy's unprecedented left-right government has been
threatened by a number of issues dividing its members, longtime
foes the center-left Democratic Party (PD) and the center-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party.
Most recently, the PdL has threatened to pull the plug if
its leader, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, loses his Senate seat
next month after his first-ever definitive conviction for tax
fraud.
Another key issue, to be discussed on Wednesday, is the
scrapping of an unpopular property tax called IMU, a campaign
pledge credited with driving Berlusconi's coalition to a close
second behind center-left rivals in February's inconclusive
general elections.
