(ANSA) – Rome, December 28 – Mario Monti, who tendered his
resignation from his post of Italian prime minister last Friday,
held a meeting Friday with political allies in Rome.
The caretaker premier met with centrist Catholic UDC party
leader Pier Ferdinando Casini, representatives of the Italia
Futura political movement, and Andrea Riccardi, a minister in
the technocrat emergency government formed by Monti in November
2011 in an effort to save Italy from a Greece-style debt crisis.
Monti quit last week after 13 months at the helm of the
eurozone's third-largest economy.
Following his resignation he announced he would back
parties that intended to pursue his reforms platform at the
upcoming February general elections, spurring support from
groupings like the UDC party and Italia Futura, which was
founded by Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.
Monti is expected to lend his name to the centrist ticket
but he has not yet said if he will stand as premier.
Pundits say its chances of becoming a pivotal force would be
strengthened if he does.
