Rome, September 10 - Heavyweights in the Italian
cabinet who belong to ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) party called an 11th-hour summit Tuesday over the
looming crisis in the Senate.
Ministers at the meeting included Angelino Alfano, deputy
premier and PdL secretary; Renato Brunetta, leader of the PdL in
the House; Constitutional Reform Minister Gaetano Quagliariello;
Infrastructure Minister Maurizio Lupi; and Health Minister
Beatrice Lorenzin.
The PdL, which shares government power with the centre-left
Democratic Party (PD), have threatened to pull out of their
alliance and topple the government over a looming Senate panel
vote.
The PdL says it will take that drastic step if the PD votes
Tuesday night to reject its petitions designed at postponing a
decision on whether Berlusconi should be stripped of his Senate
seat over a tax fraud conviction.
