You Won't Have Silvio to Kick Around Any More

Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister, has confirmed he will resign after implementing urgent economic reforms demanded by the European Union, saying Italy must then hold an election, in which he will not stand.


He does, however, have a suggestion as to who should stand.

Silvio Berlusconi has anointed as his likely successor a 41-year-old Sicilian lawyer, Angelino Alfano, best known for trying, as justice minister, to guarantee the Italian prime minister immunity from prosecution in the courts.
