Bersani blasts 'power games' after Verdini backs reforms

Former PD leader says values being debased

(ANSA) - Rome, October 5 - Pier Luigi Bersani, the former leader of Premier Matteo Renzi's centre-left Democratic Party (PD), blasted what he described as political "power games" over Denis Verdini's support for the executive's Constitutional reform bill. Verdini is the leader of a small centre-right group, ALA, which recently split from Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia. "I'm not worried about Verdini and company, but about the PD and the government's policies," Bersani said on his Facebook page. "It seems that centre-left values, ideals and programmes are being debased into 'trasformismi', power games and children's songs... It's necessary to make it clearer where we are going, without smoke screens, word games and one-liners". Trasformismo is a term used to describe apparent change that disguises lack of true reform.
