Will Silvio Berlusconi be Kicked Out of Italy’s Parliament?

ROME (AP) — The Italian Senate has begun debating whether to kick Silvio Berlusconi out of Parliament following his tax fraud conviction, but the three-time premier isn’t going without a fight.

Berlusconi fans massed in front of his Rome palazzo Wednesday, November 27, 2013 for a planned rally that analysts say is essentially the start of Italy’s next electoral campaign.

Italy’s high court upheld Berlusconi’s tax fraud conviction and four-year prison term August 1. The Senate is expected to vote to kick Berlusconi out based on a 2012 law that bans anyone sentenced to more than two years in prison from holding or running for public office for six years.

While out of public office, Berlusconi remains head of his relaunched Forza Italia party, now in the opposition.
