Friday, April 29, 2005

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government received a vote of confidence from the Italian Senate Thursday, after it earned the confidence of the House yesterday. The Senate's tally was 170 pros, 117 cons and no abstentions.

Berlusconi declared these votes of confidence as demonstrating the strength and coherence of his coalition.

He also declared that he wanted a change in the electoral law so that a bipartisan political system would srise, and that he wants to form a majority government after the next election.
