Rome, February 13 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti
Wednesday rejected ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's claim that a
vote for his coalition was effectively a vote for the Democratic
Party (PD).
"This is a profound falsehood, which I believe Berlusconi
knows," Monti told journalists in Perugia.
"In the PD-SEL (center-left) coalition I see many profound
obstacles to reforms undertaken by my government that are
essential to create a more dynamic Italian economy and society,"
Monti said.
Leader of the left-wing SEL party and center-left coalition
partner Nichi Vendola was opposed to Monti's emergency
technocrat government, unlike coalition leader Pier Luigi
Bersani's Democratic Party (PD), which supported it.
Both Vendola and the outgoing premier have said they would
not be in the same government together, although the Italian
press has speculated they might reach an accomodation.
With around 10% of projected votes, Monti's coalition
has said it will support any party, right or left, if it upholds
the reform policies his government has implemented since
replacing Berlusconi at the peak of the euro crisis near the end
of 2011.
Polls have suggested that Bersani's PD is favoured to win
the elections, but may not have a working majority in the
Senate.
This has led to speculation that Bersani could make a
post-election pact with former European commissioner Monti, who
is standing for office on a reform platform.
