Italy's Bersani tries to dispel doubts about left-wing ally (ANSA) - Rome, December 13 - Democratic Party leader Pier Luigi Bersani on Thursday sought to dispel doubts that he will not be able to effectively govern Italy if he wins upcoming general elections because of his alliance with the left-wing SEL party of Puglia Governor Nichi Vendola.

"Vendola is the governor of one of the most important Italian regions and he is the leader of a solidly pro-European party and he signed a pact with us," Bersani told reporters at the Foreign Press Association in Rome. "SEL is a precious party that brings awareness about issues concerning the environment and rights".
