Rome, December 10 - Premier Mario Monti said Monday
that there was a risk of populism taking grip in Italy's
upcoming national election campaign, while stressing that he did
not think voters would be enticed by it because "they aren't
fools".
Monti announced Saturday he would resign from office once
the 2013 budget law is approved after ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party withdrew its support
from the former European commissioner emergency technocrat
government.
"There is a risk of populist trends against EU economic
policies in every country," Monti said.
"This should be kept in mind in order to avoid it as much
as possible in the imminent election campaign in Italy," he
said, adding that "Italian people are mature, they aren't
fools".
Berlusconi, who has frequently been accused of adopting
populist stances in the past, confirmed at the weekend that he
was dropping plans to retire from front-line politics and would
stand for a fourth term as Italian premier in the elections.
