ROME (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said on Thursday he was waiting to hear President Giorgio Napoliotano's view on the political situation following the centre-right PDL party's withdrawal of support for his government in two parliamentary confidence votes.
"I am in contact with the president and I am waiting for his evaluation," Monti told a press conference after a cabinet meeting.
He said he expected to hear Napolitano's assessment after a meeting between the President and the secretary of the centre-right PDL party Angelino Alfano on Friday morning.
Napolitano has the power to call early elections if he judges the government to no longer have a ruling majority.
