++ Roma: Berlusconi, lavorerò per centrodestra unito ++ Serve programma per restituire a città onore perduto (ANSA) - Rome, October 9 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said Friday he will work towards "a united and victorious" center-right alliance in Rome in the wake of center-left Mayor Ignazio Marino's resignation.
    "Beginning today, I will work to offer voters a united and victorious center-right, with a government program for the capital that will give back the city its lost honor," said the leader of the center-right Forza Italia (FI) party.
    "I hope all the parties in our coalition will meet as soon as possible to assess the best candidates, without preconceived notions," Berlusconi added.
    "I hope no one wants to escape this responsibility out of preference for partisan interests," he said.
