Church urges politicians to put aside disputes


Vatican City, May 21 - It is time Italian
politicians put aside their partisan wrangling to deal with
serious issues facing the country, a spokesman for the Italian
Bishops Conference (CEI) said Tuesday.
"It would be worrying, faced with situations so urgent for
the country, to see the prolongation of skirmishes," and
confrontations of the type normally seen on the campaign trail,
said Msgr. Mariano Crociata, secretary to the organization's
leader Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco.
While national leaders focus so much on politics, "the
problems grow and no one seems to cope," said Crociata.
No single party won a majority in February's general
election, but last month, Enrico Letta of the centre-left
Democratic Party (PD) was named premier and managed to cobble
together a left-right government.
Still, that has meant continued struggles between the PD,
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party and
the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement(M5S).
