L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper endorsed the Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti in the coming election after he left the door open for his bid in the February election.
The newspaper said Mario Monti “who resigned earlier after Silvio Berlusconi withdraw his support, a loyal Catholic, had launched an appeal to restore the noblest sense of politics to Italy.”
As a lifetime senator, Monti cannot run for office but can take part in an election campaign and can return to the post of prime minister if asked by a party or coalition.
The Vatican used to support Silvio Berlusconi but it has now changed sides, clearly indicating a preference for a democratically elected Monti administration.
Monti`s technocrat government took office in November 2011 and managed to restore shaken confidence in Italy, set the economy back on track for fiscal health and recovery, surviving the worst of the credit crisis seen in 2012!
