OECD shouldn't interfere - Di Maio

Deputy premier rejects advice against overturning pension law

(see related) (ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio said Thursday that the OECD should not interfere in Italy's affairs after the body warned Rome against reversing a 2011 pension reform. "The OECD must not interfere in the decisions of a sovereign country that a democratically legitimated government is pursuing," 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Di Maio said.
    "The overhaul of the Fornero law is in the (government) contract and it will be carried out.
    "Almost two thirds of the Italian people are with us.
    "The bureaucrats will have to come to terms with that.
    "That was part of the reason why we were elected and we'll keep the commitment that has been made".
