Interior minister-deputy premier under fire over deportation

Senate rejects Alfano no-confidence motion

(see related story) Rome, July 19 - The Senate on Friday rejected a no-confidence motion in Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano over the deportation of the family of a Kazakh dissident. Fifty-five Senators voted in favour of the motion against Alfano, the secretary of ex-premier Berlusconi's PdL party, while 226 voted against and 13 abstained. Premier Enrico Letta's left-right government would have been in peril if Alfano had failed to pass the confidence test.
