Rome, December 13 - Democratic Party (PD) leader
Pier Luigi Bersani reiterated on Thursday that he does not think
Premier Mario Monti should run in Italy's upcoming elections,
but stressed he would cooperate with the former European
commissioner if he does.
"Mario Monti should stay out of the election campaign,"
Bersani, who is the centre left's premier candidate and is
favourite to win the elections with the PD ahead in the polls,
told German daily Die Welt.
"If, however, he does decide to stand, we'll respect this
decision and we'll show our willingness to cooperate".
There is speculation Monti could be the premier candidate
for a group of centrist parties at elections expected to take
place mid-to-late February.
Silvio Berlusconi said Wednesday he would not stand for a
fourth term as Italian premier if Monti agreed to lead a broad
coalition, including the media magnate's People of Freedom (PdL)
party, the centrist UDC and the populist, regionalist Northern
League.
Political pundits consider it unlikely that Monti would
agree to Berlusconi's proposal.
Monti said at the weekend that he would quit as premier
when the 2013 budget law is approved after the PdL withdrew its
support from his emergency technocrat administration.
