Italy: Berlusconi slams «inefficient» Italian state, supports regional autonomy in Italy

Forza Italia party leader Silvio Berlusconi showed his support of the referendum for the autonomy of the Lombardy region at a press conference in Milan on Wednesday. Berlusconi called the Italian state “inefficient” and said that with greater regional autonomy, “regions can guarantee better services than a central authority.” Looking forwards to the administrative elections in early 2018... Еще, Berlusconi guaranteed his alliance with the right-wing Northern League (Lega Nord) party and excluded the possibility of having a political deal with the Democratic Party. The Northern League, which governs both regions, hopes that a large “yes” victory will give it more bargaining power in fiscal policy negotiations with the government of Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. On Sunday 22 October, the northern Italian regions of Lombardy and Veneto will hold a referendum for greater fiscal autonomy from the Italian central government.
