Rome, January 25 - Ex-premier and People of Freedom
(PdL) leader Silvio Berlusconi officially opened the
centre-right coalition's election campaign on Friday at a party
convention in Rome.
''We are gathered here for the first time with 30 days left
to fight for a result that would allow us to spare the country
an illiberal future,'' Berlusconi told PdL candidates in Italy's
upcoming general elections on February 24 and 25.
The coalition - captained by the PdL and also including
the regionalist Northern League - held all the right cards for
victory, added the three-time premier and media magnate who is
leading its election campaign.
He asked candidates to bear in mind three things during
their campaign: the achievements of his last government, which
ran from 2008 to 2011, and of his previous government in
2001-2006, the events of November 2011 when he was forced out of
office to make way for the technocrat government of Mario Monti,
and the centre-right's programme in comparison with that of the
centre left.
The centre right is currently trailing its centre-left
rivals with 26.6% to 34.1% according to a Friday poll.
Other main contenders are the populist Five Star Movement
of comedian Beppe Grillo and a smaller centrist formation led by
outgoing Premier Mario Monti.
