Alfano premier of centre-right victory, says Berlusconi (ANSA) - Rome, February 12 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said Tuesday he would indicate former justice minister Angelino Alfano as the candidate for the premiership in the event of a centre-right victory in general elections on February 24 and 25.

Alfano, 43, is secretary of Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, which is leading the centre-right coalition.

The three-time premier also told ANSA he had a nominee for president of the republic to replace Giorgio Napolitano, who finishes his term in May after seven years in office.

However, he said he wanted to keep the name a secret. Photo: Angelino Alfano
