APTOPIX Italy Politics
People of Freedom party leader Silvio Berlusconi rubs his eyes after delivering his speech at the Senate, in Rome, Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013. Berlusconi acknowledged defeat Wednesday and announced he would support the government of Premier Enrico Letta, a stunning about-face on the Senate floor after defections in his party robbed him of the support he needed to bring down the government. It was a major setback for Berlusconi, who had demanded his five Cabinet ministers quit the government and bring it down, incensed at a vote planned Friday that could strip him of his Senate seat following his tax fraud conviction and four-year prison sentence.
