Rome, February 21 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti
said Thursday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was not
interfering in Italy's election campaign, a day after he dragged
her into the run-up for Sunday and Monday's vote.
Monti said Wednesday that he did not think Merkel would be
pleased if Pier Luigi Bersani's centre-left coalition wins the
vote.
This prompted the German government to say it would not
intervene in the election campaign.
Centre-right leader Silvio Berlusconi, meanwhile, said
Monti had won Merkel's blessing to form a post-election pact
with Bersani.
"Neither I nor Berlusconi need Merkel's blessing," said
Monti, who took the helm of an emergency government of unelected
technocrats in November 2011 and is standing on a reform
platform backed by centrist parties.
"I am very aware that Chancellor Merkel would not intervene
in the Italian elections. It's not true and it's not even close
to being true".
