Berlusconi decision to ask ministers to quit was all mine
'Anti-corruption law made retroactive to eliminate me'30 September, 18:51
Berlusconi also said the decision to ask his ministers to quit was all his.
''I decided on my own overnight, because the Italian people couldn't understand how we could stay in a government in coalition with the left after our MPs resigned''.
''They made the Severino law retroactive in order to drive me out of politics,'' Berlusconi charged in reference to a 2012 anti-corruption law banning white-collar crime convicts from public office. ''This is a doubly anti-democratic situation, on top of politicized judges. This is how they want to eliminate the leader of the moderates.''
