ROME – The leader of Italy’s center-right, Silvio Berlusconi, said on Thursday that the country needs stability and that his party will continue to support the government as long as it maintains its tax cut pledges.
“A crisis at this moment would be destabilizing and stability is a good thing,” Berlusconi said during the inauguration of the headquarters of his new Forza Italia party in his first public appearance in more than a month.
“We will stay in the government as long as it maintains its commitments,” Berlusconi said, citing the need to scrap a hated housing tax eliminated a sales-tax increase scheduled to take place in October. (Reuters)
