Berlusconi PDL Party About to Explode

Enrico Mentana, an Italian newscaster, tweeted that Silvio Berlusconi’s PdL party is about to explode with certain senior members defecting and supporting Mario Monti.

The political blast has not happened yet, but is apparently imminent.  Except it was not that imminent!  No explosion today.  Maybe tomorrow.

Interestingly, Berlusconi has announced today that if Mario Monti says he’ll lead a party of moderates, he, Silvio Berlusconi, will withdraw from his attempt to be re-elected as prime minister.

Silvio Berlusconi’s recent decision to stand for re-election as prime minister of Italy has not gone down well in Italy and has spooked many worldwide too, virtually undoing overnight the nation’s credibility Mario Monti had worked hard to restore throughout 2012.

More will follow if and when the explosion actually occurs.
