Former pre­mier wants vote de­layed

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

Sil­vio Ber­lus­coni and fel­low lead­ers of his splin­ter­ing con­ser­va­tive party on Tues­day pressed for a de­lay in Italy’s na­tional elec­tions, now widely ex­pected for mid-Fe­bru­ary, ar­gu­ing they need more time to pre­pare for the cam­paign. The scan­dal-scarred former three-time pre­mier, who is con­sid­er­ing run­ning for the post again, said on a state TV talk show that the “rush to­ward elec­tions” is “use­less,” and that party lead­ers need more time to draw up lists of can­di­dates for Par­lia­ment.
