Naples, November 19 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano said Monday that voters, and no one else, must decide
who will succeed Premier Mario Monti when his term ends next
spring.
In the run-up to a planned change of office in March,
analysts have speculated that economic reforms passed under
Monti would not be brought to term under his successor.
Many have also wondered if Monti, a technocrat brought in
by Napolitano to replace Silvio Berlusconi amid a peak in the
euro crisis last year, would stay on for another term, despite
repeated denials.
"When there are free elections, no one can foresee the
result," said Napolitano Monday.
"There's always an element of risk when you vote. But shall
we not vote for this reason? Or, for peace of mind, shall we
predetermine the successor? We'll see how the citizens express
themselves".
Earlier Monday Monti sought to quell concerns over the
future of Italian politics by saying that the administration
after his will do "even better".
Napolitano said that Monti's initiatives had put the
country on a path "it could not leave".
"The parties say they want to build on that, not destroy
it, he said. "This seems like something that can encourage our
friends regarding the future in Italy".
