Vatican City, November 8 - Italian citizens should
emulate their American counterparts by turning out
"enthusiastically" in mass for next April's general election,
Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone said
Thursday.
Amid widespread disaffection with politics in Italy, the
Vatican No.2 said the vote that confirmed Barack Obama as
president was "a lesson in mass and enthusiastic participation
in this act of democracy".
"I hope this happens in other countries like Italy, that
people do not flee their responsibilities (as voters), that they
are aware of those responsibilities as citizens," Bertone said.
Poll show as many as 30-40%% of eligible voters are unsure
who to support after technocrat Premier Mario Monti ends his
term.
Of those who have told pollsters they have made their minds
up, about 27% are currently favouring the centre-left Democrat
Party led by Pier Luigi Bersani, 20% the anti-establishment Five
Star Movement of comedian Beppe Grillo, and 15% the People of
Freedom Party of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
