Rome, September 12 - Premier Enrico Letta said
Thursday he was sure a Senate panel vote next week on banning
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi would not sink the government.
"I am serene, sure that good sense will prevail," said
Letta, whose centre-left Democratic Party (PD) is allied with
Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party in a
shaky coalition.
Letta said he would "work with determination" to prevent
"Italy harming itself" by a government crisis he has said would
cost the country more than a billion euros in higher borrowing
costs.
The PdL has said it will pull out of the coalition if the PD
votes to strip Berlusconi of his Senate seat in accordance with
his August 1 conviction for tax fraud at his media empire.
The PD has said it will implement an anti-corruption law
approved by both parties last year, which the PdL claims is
being applied retroactively, and therefore against the Italian
Constitution, in Berlusconi's case.
The PD rejects the PdL's argument.
