Italy urgently needs govt say bishops
'Stable team' to boost growth, help needy says Msgr Crociata21 March, 13:50
"It is urgent that the Country has a stable government," said Msgr Mariano Crociata. He urged politicians currently trying to form a government despite a hung parliament to put together "the most stable team possible" to keep recession-hit Italy in good fiscal shape while boosting growth and helping the needy "who are seeing their situation getting dangerously worse".
No party has a majority in parliament and while President Giorgio Napolitano has said he wants to avoid another election, many analysts see it as likely.
