Bersani to lower taxes 'if possible'
Centre-left leader also wants to boost investment18 January, 12:49
''If there are the margins to do it I think it is necessary to reduce fiscal pressure, starting with work, pensions, personal income tax, the lowest income levels, and boost investment,'' Bersani said in an interview with Radio 24 of Italy's leading business newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore.
Italians are due to vote for a new parliament at the end of February.
Currently a PD-led centre-left coalition is leading the polls followed by a centre-right formation led by the People of Freedom (PdL) party of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi and a smaller centrist grouping promoted by the outgoing technocrat Premier Mario Monti.
