Rome, January 2 - Silvio Berlusconi said Wednesday
that he considered centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani to be
his real opponent in next month's general elections, not
outgoing Premier Mario Monti.
"No. No," Berlusconi said when asked whether he thought
Monti was his main adversary.
"Our opponent is always the party that comes from the
Communist ideology," he said referring to Bersani's Democratic
Party (PD).
"It has changed name but it has radical roots in that idea
and has Bersani as its representative".
Bersani is a veteran of Italy's former Communist party, the
rump of which changed into a social democratic party after the
fall of the Berlin wall before merging with the centrist
Margherita (Daisy) party to form the PD in 2007.
Monti took over the helm of an emergency administration of
unelected technocrats in November 2011 after the financial
crisis forced centre-right Berlusconi to resign as premier and
end his third stint as premier.
Former European commissioner Monti said last month he would
run for premier at the head of a group of parties willing to
back his reform agenda.
