Monti says parties should be kept far from banks
MPS problems at centre of political storm31 January, 16:52
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.
