Senate session suspended after duty speaker no-show

(ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - Thursday's Senate session was suspended early in the day because there was no duty speaker to oversee it. Experts said it was the first time such an incident has taken place in the history of the Italian Republic. The Senate Speaker is Renato Schifani of former premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, but he has four deputies who also oversee sessions of the Upper House. On Thursday no one came to oversee proceedings after Senator Emma Bonino finished her shift in charge. It emerged that the next duty speaker, Domenico Nania, had been delayed on his way to the Senate.
