EP Speaker Schulz warns Italians against voting Berlusconi


(see related story on election campaign)
Berlin, February 21 - European Parliament Speaker
Martin Schulz has warned the Italian people against voting for
three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right alliance in
Sunday and Monday's general election.
The MEP told German tabloid Bild that Berlusconi had
"already sent Italy to the bottom of the abyss once with the
actions of an irresponsible government".
Berlusconi was forced to resign as prime minister in
November 2011 when Italy's debt crisis threatened to spiral out
of control and his government was replaced outgoing Premier
Mario Monti's emergency administration of unelected technocrats.
Schulz and Berlusconi have had several run-ins in the past.
In December Schulz said that Berlusconi was bad for Italy
and for Europe.
Berlusconi compared Schulz, who is German, to a Nazi
concentration camp guard during an angry exchange at the
European Parliament in June 2003.
Schulz added in the interview that "a lot is at stake" in
the upcoming vote, including the risk of losing confidence that
has built up in Italy on the international stage and on the
money markets since Monti took power.
"I have great faith that Italian voters will make the best
choice for their country," Schulz said.
