Rome, December 11 - Silvio Berlusconi blasted the
record of Premier Mario Monti on Tuesday and said the former
European commissioner has been too 'German-centric' since
replacing him in office.
Monti came to power at the helm of an administration of
unelected technocrats a year ago when Berlusconi was forced to
quit as premier with Italy's debt crisis threatening to spiral
out of control.
Monti has passed austerity measures, which German
Chancellor Angela Merkel had called on countries at the centre
of the eurozone debt crisis to adopt, that reassured investors
Italy was putting its financial house in order.
But these measures also deepened the recession the country
slipped into last year.
"Unfortunately, the Monti government has taken us into a
crisis situation that is much worse than when we were in
government," Berlusconi told one of his Mediaset TV channels
via telephone.
"Monti has followed a policy that is too German-centric.
All the economic indicators are worse. It's not up to me to pass
judgement, but all the figures are negative".
