Voters split along party lines on Berlusconi ban

73% of Italians think PD should vote against him

Voters split along party lines on Berlusconi ban

Rome, September 13 - Voters split along party lines in a poll out Friday on stripping ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi of his Senate seat because of a tax-fraud conviction. Almost all (98%) of centre-left voters said Berlusconi should go while 89% of supporters of his People of Freedom (PdL) party said he shouldn't. The average between the two sides came out as 73% of Italians in favour of centre-left Democratic Party (PD) enforcing a new anti-corruption law in a Senate vote to eject the media magnate later this month. The SWG agency poll said 60% of Italians think the PdL should continue to support the PD-led government if Berlusconi loses his seat but 52% of PdL voters believe he should sink the unprecedented left-right emergency reform coalition.
