Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has no intention of stepping down, his party said on Friday, amid talks within the ruling coalition after a call from the speaker of parliament for him to resign. Berlusconi's People of Freedom party said it would be "unacceptable" for parliament to form "a new prime minister and a new government." The party said there should either be early elections or the government should complete its mandate, which runs out in 2013. Parliament speaker Gianfranco Fini, a former ally of Berlusconi turned bitter rival, on Sunday called on the prime minister to resign, threatening to pull four ministers loyal to him out of the government if he did not. Analysts say the collapse of the government is now only a question of time. Umberto Bossi, leader of the Northern League party, the junior coalition partner, held talks with Fini today but there was no concrete result. Bossi said there was still "some space" for negotiation after the talks, but Fini said that Berlusconi should give an official response to his demands. Fini said he would wait for Berlusconi's return from the G20 summit.
