Mario Monti ‘may head Italy’
Rome: Keeping options open Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has hinted in a press conference that he may consider the offer of leading the nation if any party backs his agenda.
Though, he clearly denied any interest in running for the top post in the elections that take place February 2013.
He has also refrained from associating himself from any particular party.
He had earlier turned down an offer by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to lead a centrist coalition.
Monti has been in the limelight for his economic reforms and maintains that he will support anyone who supports his anti- crisis agenda.
It was yesterday that Monti tendered his resignation to President Giorgio Napolitano on Friday, shortly after Parliament approved his government`s 2013 budget.
In the meantime, Napolitano has asked 69-year-old Monti to continue in a caretaker capacity.
Monti was brought in to form a technocratic government last year when Silvio Berlusconi stepped down as country`s prime minister.
