Rome: Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi criticised a campaign of mudslinging following new allegations of sex with a prostitute.

The 74-year-old billionaire, speaking to leaders of his party today, vowed to remain in office as long he had the consensus of Italians.

He spoke after newspapers published what are described as transcripts of an interrogation of a prostitute by prosecutors last week. She reportedly said Berlusconi paid her for sex during a party at his villa in Sardinia two years ago.

The prosecutor's office confirmed she was questioned but gave no details.

Berlusconi has consistently said he is no saint but has denied he ever paid for sex.
