Campania Governor De Luca wins suspension petition - update

PD member can now appoint his regional executive

(ANSA) - Naples, July 2 - A Naples court on Thursday upheld new Campania Governor Vincenzo De Luca's urgent petition against a suspension from office on the basis of an anti-corruption law.
    The ruling means that De Luca, a member of Premier Matteo Renzi's centre-left Democratic Party (PD), will be able to take part in his first regional assembly meeting and appoint his executive. The ban, stemming from an abuse-of-office conviction from De Luca's term as mayor of Salerno, has been lifted pending the court's ruling on his appeal against it.
