Mario Monti and his ministers are on the spot over their close links to powerful financial elites. But we can push them to urgently disclose any conflicts of interest and defend our democracy. Members of the new cabinet have held top jobs in some of Italy’s biggest banks and private companies.
Now, they need to make important decisions affecting those they’ve served. We need to make sure they are serving the public interest not their old bosses. A group of MPs is proposing an urgent bill to guarantee our government is transparent and accountable to citizens, and is urgently asking Avaaz to help.
Let’s call on Monti now to publish all relevant information on the income and professional relations of his cabinet members, and pave the way for a strong transparency law in Italy. This is the only way for us to fairly judge the actions of the new government! Sign this urgent petition and tell everyone – it will be delivered by key MPs when we reach 75,000 signatures.
