Brussels, November 13 - Premier Mario Monti said
Thursday that he made a surprise appearance at the European
Popular Party (EPP) summit on Brussels to give an outline of
Italy's political situation after he announced at the weekend he
would resign when the 2013 budget law is approved.
Monti is not a member of a political party that belongs to
the EPP and his presence fuelled speculation he may run for
premier at upcoming general elections in Italy at the helm of a
coalition of centrist parties.
"I came here to explain the Italian political situation,"
Monti said between the EPP summit and the European Council
meeting.
"I recalled what the situation was when I started (as
premier), the things that have been done and the conditions that
determined my decision".
The former European commissioner announced he would step
down after Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party
withdrew its support for his emergency technocrat government
last week.
He stressed, however, that this did not mean Italy would
be rudderless until the elections, which are expected to take
place mid-to-late February.
"I reminded the EPP that the government remains in power
for current business," he said.
