Rome, September 18 - Italy's Senate immunity panel
will meet at 20:30 local time on Wednesday for a vote that could
lead to stripping ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi of his seat in
the Upper House and spell the end of Italy's shaky left-right
coalition government.
Each parliamentary group will have 10 minutes to present
their argument, the president of the Senate panel, Dario
Stefano, said.
The meeting is expected to end at 22:30.
The panel began related meetings earlier Wednesday.
At stake is a six-year ban from public office for the
three-time premier and media magnate to comply with a new
anti-corruption rule that kicked in after Italy's supreme
Cassation Court found Berlusconi guilty last month for tax
fraud, his first ever binding conviction in nearly 20 years of
legal entanglements with magistrates he claims are left-wing and
biased.
Berlusconi's party, the centre-right People of Freedom
(PdL), has vowed to pull its vital support from the executive it
co-governs with the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) if
Senators from the PD vote to ban Berlusconi from office.
