Italy’s Monti Likely to Call Confidence Vote, Il Messaggero Says

Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti will likely have to call a confidence vote to win parliamentary approval for his emergency economic measures, Il Messaggero reported, citing Gianfranco Fini, head of the Chamber of Deputies.

Members of parliament have proposed around 800 amendments to Monti’s package, making a confidence vote to push through the norms more likely, the newspaper said. Monti is continuing discussions with political parties on possible changes and plans to meet unions later today to try to find an accord, Il Messaggero said.
