Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is set to resign today after a new budget law is approved in the Chamber of Deputies debate

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is set to resign today after a new budget law is approved in the Chamber of Deputies debate at 11.30 GMT, making way for an emergency government and ending one of the most scandal-plagued eras in Italy's post-war history.

After the debate, Berlusconi is expected to hold a last cabinet meeting and hand his resignation to President Giorgio Napolitano.
