Egoistic interests in Italy

Wolfgang Schieder explains why the legislative elections scheduled for April in Italy will also fail to produce a stable government: "Apart from the business association and a few intellectuals, no one wants a really stable political environment. More than in any other European nation, voting behaviour in Italy is governed by economic, social, regional and local special interests. The Lega Nord is the most ruthless party in protecting the interests of its north Italian clientele. The criminal secret societies of the Camorra in Campanile, the 'Ndrangheta in Calabria and the Mafia in Sicily are by no means secretive about protecting the special interests of their respective clientele. The personification of personal interest egoism is Silvio Berlusconi, whose politics are aimed solely at preserving his media empire."
