Monti would serve again 'in special circumstances'

(ANSA) - New York, September 27 - Italian Premier Mario Monti said Thursday he would consider a second term as premier "in special circumstances". Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, the premier said he would "consider the proposal" if there were special circumstances, "which I hope there are not". Monti, who has repeatedly insisted he will not run in elections next year, said he would continue to serve his country as a Life Senator, a title he assumed shortly before taking the helm of a technocratic government in November. At the time, mounting pressure from the euro crisis forced then premier Silvio Berlusconi to step down, and President Giorgio Napolitano nominated Monti, an economist and former European Commissioner, to replace him.
