Rome, January 24 - Former Italian premier Silvio
Berlusconi on Thursday called caretaker premier Mario Monti's
choice to run in upcoming general elections "unreasonable".
Technocrat Monti has been running Italy since being
appointed in November 2011 to replace Berlusconi and steer Italy
away from a Greece-style debt debacle.
He resigned last month after losing support in a crucial
parliament vote and has since stayed on as a caretaker leader
charged with managing ordinary administration.
Berlusconi, who heads a nation's centre-right coalition,
which is one of the main contenders in the upcoming vote,
appealed to Italians not to dissipate their preferences on
"smaller parties".
The media mogul-turned-politician made the comments in an
interview with Italy's Radio Due.
"We must form two large political parties, such as exist in
the best Western democracies," Berlusconi said.
