Complaining is 'useless,' action is needed, tweets Monti

Rome, December 26 - Premier Mario Monti said in a Twitter message Christmas night that it was useless for Italians to "complain," instead they need to "take action". "Together, we have saved Italy from disaster," Monti wrote. The premier also tweeted that what was needed was the "continued renewal" of politics. On Christmas Day, Monti telephoned President Giorgio Napolitano and expressed his "deep gratitude for the outstanding moral and institutional guidance" he had given the country. He also phoned political leaders including ex-premier and founder of the center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party Silvio Berlusconi, PdL Secretary Angelino Alfano, Democratic Party (PD) leader Pier Luigi Bersani and head of the small centrist Catholic UDC party, Pier Ferdinando Casini expressing his "appreciation" for their "input in parliament during the "national emergency". Monti resigned after the key vote on the 2013 budget law in parliament last Friday and on Sunday posted an agenda of reforms on the Web after saying he might lead forces who endorse it in Italy's upcoming general election.
