Monti confesses 'pride' at getting parties to work together

Paris, November 2 - Italian Premier Mario Monti on Friday confessed his "pride" at having succeeded in getting political parties to support his technocrat government, formed in November 2011 to tackle the risks for Italy of the eurozone crisis. ''I am truly proud of having made the three political parties that make up our majority work together, not in harmony but in agreement,'' Monti said in an interview to the French daily 'Les Echos'. ''Formerly, these three parties did not talk to each other or hurled abuse at each other''. The Monti government, whose mandate expires at the end of the current parliament next spring, is supported by the centre-left Democratic Party (Pd) led by Pier Luigi Bersani, the centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi and the Catholic centrist UDC of Pier Ferdinando Casini. Clean Hands magistrate Antonio Di Pietro's anti-Berlusconi party Italy of Values (IdV) and the right-wing Northern League are in opposition.
