'PdL doves suggest new name Nuova Italia'
Defectors from Silvio Berlusconi seek new political name01 October, 17:18
The name 'Nuova Italia' or New Italy is being considered by dissenters who are said to be ready to split from the PdL after Berlusconi moved on the weekend to bring down the coalition government.
Earlier, PdL Senators who are reportedly interested in leaving Berlusconi's party, were said to be considering an organization to be dubbed the PdL-PPE, representing a link with the European People's Party, which is known by the Italian acronym PPE.
It is a centre-right bloc to which the PdL belongs in the European Parliament.
