UDC leader Casini says Europe must learn from Obama's win

Rome, November 7 - Pier Ferdinando Casini, the leader of Italy's centrist Catholic UDC party, said Wednesday that Europe should learn from United States President Barack Obama's election victory and not abandon the weaker sections of society as it seeks to overcome the eurozone crisis. "The overwhelming majority of Europeans cheered for Obama in order to continue the close relationship between the United States and Europe and overcome the crisis with (financial) rigor without forgetting social fairness and solidarity," Casini said. "That is the sense of supporting Obama for us. You cannot fail to combine rigour with the defence of the weakest citizens. "This is an issue that we should face too". Casini's party is one of the three main political groups supporting Premier Mario Monti's emergency government in parliament although it is considerably smaller than the other two - the centre-left Democratic Party and ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party.
