Rome, December 28 - Mario Monti, who tendered his
resignation last week from his job as prime minister of Italy
after 13 months at the helm of the nation, said a coalition of
political parties that backed his reform agenda was formed on
Friday.
Monti, who headed a technocrat government tasked with
steering the euro zone’s third-largest economy away from a debt
crisis, said a "new political grouping was being born today" at
a press conference after meeting with political allies in Rome.
The caretaker premier, who will oversee ordinary government
administration until the new one takes over, met with centrist
Catholic UDC party leader Pier Ferdinando Casini,
representatives of the Italia Futura political movement, and
Andrea Riccardi, a minister in his technocrat emergency
government today.
Following his resignation he announced he would back
parties that intended to pursue his reforms platform at the
upcoming February general elections rather than actively run in
the elections, spurring the support from groupings like the UDC
party and Italia Futura.
"I had never thought of creating a new party, I am not a
man of providence", Monti said.
