Rome, January 3 - Premier candidate Pier Luigi
Bersani, the leader of the center-left Democratic Party (PD),
rebuffed outgoing Premier Mario Monti on Thursday for telling
him to silence the alleged anti-reform elements within his
party's ranks.
"I have respect (for Monti), but I ask for respect for the
entire PD. We are a liberal party that will never shut anyone
up," said Bersani.
Earlier Thursday, Monti called on Bersani to "be brave and
silence the conservative part of his party a little," referring
to opposition to labor-market reform from Italy's biggest trade
union confederation, the left-wing CGIL, which has ties to the
PD, and from Stefano Fassina, the PD spokesman on economic
affairs.
Bersani said that courage "did not mean shutting people up,
but enabling them to participate".
