(ANSA) - Rome, September 17 - German Chancellor Angela
Merkel on Monday sidestepped a question on the possible return
of former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi to front-line
politics.
Berlusconi, who was forced to step down in November when
Italy looked in danger of being overwhelmed by the eurozone
crisis, ended a long silence at the weekend with some
controversial comments, including criticism of the EU's Fiscal
Compact.
The 75-year-old media magnate has said he has not yet
decided whether he will run for a fourth term as Italian premier
at elections next year.
He had said he would not stand again after he resigned as
premier in November to make way for Mario Monti's emergency
technocrat administration but leading members of his People of
Freedom (PdL) party have said he will be their candidate next
spring.
"I'm a democratic politician," Merkel told a news
conference when asked if she was worried about the prospect of
Berlusconi's coming back.
"And I concentrate on Germany and on concrete facts".
