Rome, March 29 - President Giorgio Napolitano's
efforts to form a government are likely to fail and fresh
elections are looming after last month's inconclusive vote, the
House whip for outgoing Premier Mario Monti's party said Friday.
"Unfortunately I see the vote very close," said Lorenzo
Dellai, adding that he was worried because "the (political)
climate in the country will get worse".
Napolitano is talking to parties Friday to try to muster
support for a government to replace Monti's technocrat
administration.
So far, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi has insisted on the
need for a grand coalition between his People of Freedom (PdL)
party and the centre-left Democratic Party, the biggest forces
in parliament, but the PD reiterated its opposition to this.
Anti-establishment comic Beppe Grillo, whose 5-Star
Movement (M5S) holds the balance of power in the hung
parliament, has refused to work with the established parties but
the M5S reportedly said Friday it might back a
"pseudo-technocrat" to enact a limited reform agenda.
Monti restored Italy's credibility after taking over from
Berlusconi in November 2011 but deepened the recession with
austerity policies before standing for premier and coming in
fourth.
