Italy's center-left PD publishes eight-point government plan

Rome, March 20 - Italy's Democratic Party (PD), which won a majority of seats in the lower house of Italy's parliament but failed to secure a majority in the Senate during last February's elections, on Wednesday published the details of its eight-point program, including new citizenship rules and civil unions for gays. The points, which PD leader Pier Luigi Bersani has said would serve as the basis for a PD-led government, include a law against gay-bashing, recognition of civil unions between gays along the German model and laws to protect women from violence. The proposals, which also include calling for the granting of Italian citizenship to children born in Italy of foreign parents, are published on the PD's website, www.partitodemocratico.it. Citizens are invited to comment and propose changes online.
