(ANSA) - Rome, September 24 - Italian Premier Mario Monti
responded to mounting pressure for anti-corruption reforms
Monday promising balanced, reasonable action.
Scandal broke in recent days over alleged misuse of
millions of euros' worth of public funds intended for the
centre-right People of Freedom party in the Lazio region - the
latest in a string of scandals, covering the political spectrum,
from Milan to Naples.
Lazio Governor Renata Polverini, who saw Monti at the
weekend, is under pressure to quit.
In addition, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and
Development (OECD) called for the Italian government to make
tackling corruption a high priority at a Rome presentation
Monday.
"The inertia of a political party is understandable but not
excusable," Monti said, speaking at the OECD conference.
"There will be a balanced package on justice," Monti added.
The OECD had said businesses and citizens "see corruption
as an aggravating factor that contributes to the debt crisis.
This question is a priority for the current (Italian)
government."
