Employers say second Monti govt would need 'legitimacy'

Must have vote first, argues Squinzi

Employers say second Monti govt would need 'legitimacy'

(ANSA) - Milan, October 1 - Italy's industrial employers' confederation Confindustria said on Monday that the prospect of Premier Mario Monti staying on at the helm of government would only be acceptable if it were in some way legitimized at elections. Last week Monti reitered that he would not stand when his term ends and elections are held next spring, but said he would be willing to stay on as premier if no clear political winner emerges from the ballot box. "With the legitimacy of the vote, it would be perfectly fine for me," Confindustria chief Giorgio Squinzi told ANSA when asked about the possibility of a second Monti-led government. "I repeat I believe that first it is necessary to go through the legitimacy of a vote". Former European commissioner Monti took the helm of an emergency administration of non-political technocrats when the financial crisis forced Silvio Berlusconi to quit as premier last November.
