Berlusconi appeal over confidence vote ‘folly’

ROME – Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has called on legislators not to jeopardise the government out of narrow political interests, as he faces votes of confidence, BBC News said. Speaking to the Senate, he said Italy needed operational continuity, and ousting him would create a “crisis in the dark”. Those seeking to do so would be unable to form a government, he said. If he loses, Berlusconi has said there will be early elections. “I understand those who would challenge the government, opening a crisis leading to fresh elections or at least proposing a different prime minister, whilst being sure of the ability to form a new governing majority,” he said in his speech. “However, I cannot understand the spirit of those who want to trigger, at all costs, a crisis in the dark.”
