Rome, April 8 - Italy needs a stable government
able to respond quickly to its economic crisis, rather than a
body that is constantly focused on its own survival, centre-left
leader Pier Luigi Bersani said Monday.
"Our country is really in trouble," Bersani, leader of the
centre-left Democratic Party said in a letter to La Repubblica
newspaper published on Monday.
He condemned the continued uncertainty around Italy's
future government as taking a cruel toll on economic prospects
but repeated his disdain for a coalition with the centre-right
led by former premier Silvio Berlusconi.
"They multiply the conditions of extreme malaise and worsen
a radical drop in confidence," said Bersani in his letter.
"We want a government, of course. But a government that can
act unequivocally....in the common life of the citizens.
"Not a government that lives in acrobatics".
But working in partnership with Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) is an option favoured by some in Bersani's PD,
which won a majority in the lower house of Parliament in
late-February elections.
That was not enough, however, to give his government
control as he failed to win a majority in the equally powerful
Senate.
The PD will try to win more public support next Saturday
with an anti-poverty rally announced Monday.
Meanwhile, Berlusconi's PdL maintained Monday that Bersani
needs the centre-right's support to tackle Italy's economic
woes.
"The priority for the PdL is to help Italy to exit quickly
from the crisis by supporting businesses and families," by
working with Bersani, said Barbara Saltamartini, a member of the
PdL national directorate.
