ROME Feb 15 Silvio Berlusconi, leader of
Italy's main centre-right party, on Saturday said he would
continue to support an agreement sealed last month with
centre-left leader Matteo Renzi to reform the electoral law and
the political system.
"We will stick to the agreement on the electoral law and
institutional reforms," Berlusconi said after meeting President
Giorgio Napolitano, who is holding consultations with
parliamentary groups on the formation of a new government.
The accord between Renzi and Berlusconi had been a source of
friction for the coalition supporting Enrico Letta, who resigned
as prime minister on Friday.
Napolitano is expected to tap Renzi to form a new government
this weekend backed by the same coalition as the one that
supported Letta. Berlusconi said his Forza Italia party would
remain in the opposition.
