De Luca to stay as Campania governor pending court (3)

Constitutional Court to say if Severino law OK

De Luca to stay as Campania governor pending court (3)

Naples, December 28 - A Naples civil court on Monday ruled that Campania Governor Vincenzo De Luca is to stay in office pending a Constitutional Court ruling on whether the law that mandated his suspension from office complies with the constitution. A Naples court this summer upheld De Luca's appeal against an abuse-of-office ban under the so-called Severino law. De Luca was elected governor on May 31 and filed an urgent petition to stay in office. He named an 8-strong team featuring six women on July 6. De Luca, a member of Premier Matteo Renzi's centre-left Democratic Party (PD), had been banned because of a January abuse-of-office conviction from his term as mayor of Salerno. The case involved him picking a city manager of his own accord rather than going through a long selection process. De Luca won May's regional election in Campania even though his name was included on a list of candidates deemed to be 'unpresentable' by a parliamentary anti-mafia committee because of the conviction related to an incinerator project. His candidacy was controversial but he won centre-left primaries to lead the PD ticket. Raffaele Cantone, the head of Italy's anti-corruption authority, has said that the 2012 anti-graft law under which De Luca had been suspended was in need of being revamped. The Severino law, named after former justice minister Paola Severino, bans from office politicians convicted of certain crimes. Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi was ejected from parliament under the law in 2013 after a definitive tax-fraud conviction. But the De Luca case comes after a successful challenge against a ban under it by Naples Mayor Luigi de Magistris.
