Piacenza, December 10 - The leader of Italy's
centre left, Pier Luigi Bersani, said on Monday that outgoing
Italian Premier Mario Monti should not run in the upcoming
general election.
"I have always said that Mario Monti must be useful for the
country, and for this reason it would be better if he remained
out of the contest," Bersani declared.
Bersani was re-elected eight days ago as secretary of the
centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and is running for premier
himself.
Mario Monti announced his imminent resignation as head of
Italy's technical government after the centre-right People of
Freedom Party (PdL) withdrew its support in a parliamentary vote
last week and the PdL's founder, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi,
confirmed over the weekend he would run again for top office.
"We have loyally supported this transitional operation
which the (political) right has scarred in the last weeks. In
the future I believe that there will be the possibility to have
a rapport with Monti in the name of Italy. It would be easier if
Monti remained outside the electoral contest. (However) each
person can make their own assessment with serenity. I have no
intention of inhibiting their choices," Bersani said.
