Silvio Berlusconi's non-confidence vote


Queen’s University political studies professor Grant Amyot is available to talk about a confidence vote Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is facing on Dec. 14 that may cost him his job.

“This is a serious threat to Silvio Berlusconi’s power and may finally bring his tenure in office to an end. Even some of his supporters are becoming tired of the stories of improper conduct with young women and attempts to obtain legal immunity in three on-going trials,” says Dr. Amyot, who specializes in Italian politics.
