Alfano tweets that efforts to kill IMU not finished
Final decision on housing tax to be made by cabinet on Wednesday26 August, 20:07
"On IMU there is still work to do before Wednesday, but we can do it," wrote Alfano, secretary of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party.
The centre-right PdL is committed to eliminating the tax, while the center-left Democratic Party (PD) suggests amending it instead.
Letta called a snap meeting Monday with core members of his fragile coalition – including Alfano - to discuss the IMU, which cabinet is scheduled to deal with on Wednesday.
