Rome, January 3 - Left-wing leader Nichi Vendola
on Thursday criticized Premier Mario Monti for having entered
the election fray without wanting "to actually take part" in the
political scuffles ahead of the general elections next month.
Vendola, who is the governor of the southern region of
Puglia and whose Left Ecology Freedom (SEL) party is a principal
ally of the Democratic Party (PD), slammed Monti for having what
he described as a contrasting attitude in the campaign.
"Monti has entered the ring with the presumption of someone
who wants to participate, while at the same time wanting to be
the referee and decide who has won this match", said Vendola.
"There is an element of arrogance that must be rebuffed".
Monti resigned last month after 13 months at the helm of
the eurozone's third largest economy.
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.
Vendola said Monti was dominating the television airwaves
with a "Berlusconi-like ability".
"I have no advice to give to Monti, who has learned the
rules of politics very quickly and has taken up the TV air waves
and mass media with a Berlusconi-like capacity", Vendola said.
"We need to give hope to Italy that there is the
possibility of change and not to continue with the devastation
of the social state".
"This is the way to win and to govern the future of Italy".
