Monti 'worried', says had to announce resignation

Rome, December 10 - Premier Mario Monti has said he is worried about Italy's plight but had no alternative to announcing he would quit after Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party withdraw its support from his government. "I'm convinced I did the right thing," former European commissioner Monti, who said on Saturday that he would resign once the 2013 budget law is approved, told La Repubblica. "I could not do otherwise after what happened. I didn't feel a majority around me that, even with some reservations and maybe resentment, was capable of supporting the political position and programme we had agreed on. "I couldn't do otherwise. It would not have been right or possible. "But naturally I'm worried, not for myself, but for what I see".
