New anti-mafia commission president says she won't quit
PdL threatened 'guerrilla warfare' if Rosy Bindi doesn't resign25 October, 14:41
After her controversial election on Tuesday, Bindi said she would not step down and would instead work hard ''to overcome this moment of difficulty with the PdL as we must all join forces to fight the mafia''.
The PdL is furious that the PD managed to get Bindi elected as chair of the commission despite fierce opposition from the centre-right group.
The PD and the PdL have been in a fractious alliance since April, when Letta's grand-coalition government was sworn in to end two months of deadlock after February's general election failed to produce a clear winner.
PdL House whip Renato Brunetta, a former civil service minister, said the PdL would hamper the work of the government and parliament until Bindi resigns, threatening ''guerrilla warfare''.
