Italian church tells politicians not to be self-absorbed


Genoa, June 7 - Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the head
of Italian bishops conference CEI, told the country's
politicians not to lose focus on the problems affecting ordinary
Italians as they start trying to tackle a series of
institutional reforms.
Parliament has started work on reforms considered necessary
to make Italy easier to govern, including a new election law,
cuts to the number of MPs and changes to the parliamentary
set-up to make approving bills less arduous.
But Bagnasco, the archbishop of Genoa, said Premier Enrico
Letta's government must not let this distract it from working to
ease the problems created by the country's longest recession in
over 20 years, above all unemployment.
"The political world is discussing its costs and (issues
such as) whether to have a president directly elected by the
people," Bagnasco said.
"No one doubts that these issues are important for the good
of the country. But the people feel that the meat of the problem
is jobs for everyone, especially the young".
