One out of 10 Italians want Monti to stay in office (ANSA) - Rome, December 14 - Approximately one out of 10 (11%) Italians would like to see Premier Mario Monti remain in office, a survey by the polling agency SWG released on Friday said.

Of those polled, 6% of the support for Monti's return came from center-left voters and 5% from center-right constituents. Instead, 13% of those interviewed said that they would like to see Monti as President of the Republic. The survey also said that 44% of Italians are in favor of Monti continuing to serve his country as a Life Senator, a title he assumed shortly before taking the helm of a technocratic government in November.
