Rome, January 9 - A victorious Democratic Party
(PD) in next month's election would ask outgoing premier Mario
Monti to support a government under leader Pier Luigi Bersani,
the deputy head of the PD said Wednesday.
"We aim to win the election and after, we will ask ...the
centre to support the Bersani government," said Enrico Letta.
The statement from the left-leaning PD was a surprise,
given that Monti, running on his own pro-market reform ticket,
has signalled he would not serve under Bersani after the
February 24-25 election.
It also annoyed Angelino Alfano, secretary of the
right-wing People of Freedom (PdL) party founded by ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi.
Alfano, who could stand as the party's candidate for
premier, claimed the statement indicated that Monti and the PD
were working together, despite the outgoing premier's insistence
he is an alternative to the right and the left.
"It is official: Now Monti is Bersani's crutch," said
Alfano.
"Thanks to the Democratic Party for clarity".
The PD has a 15-point lead over the PdL with Monti 10
points behind in third, according to a rough aggregate of recent
polls.
