Monti says parties should be kept far from banks

(see related stories) Rome, January 31 - Outgoing Italian Premier Mario Monti said Thursday that banks and the political world should be kept separate after the financial scandal at Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS) bank became an election issue. The Democratic Party, which is leading the centre-left coalition that is favourite to win next month's election, has a big presence in the foundation that controls the Tuscan bank. "Let's keep the parties far from the banks," said Monti, who is running for office on a reform ticket backed by centrist parties. Monti has been also criticised in the affair by centre-right politicians after his emergency technocrat government authorised a 3.9 billion aid package for MPS.
